If you are looking for a dark comedy with all the right ingredients, search no farther than Chicago (The Musical) tickets. The city of Chicago during the 1920s was a hotbed for music, maidens and murder and a combustible setting for any drama. Chicago (The Musical) captures the essence of the era with incredible music, racy costumes and a top-notch cast.

The story starts with two characters, Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart. Kelly is a vaudeville performer who is on top of the Chicago jazz scene. Kelly shared an act with her sister but that partnership ended tumultuously when Kelly found her husband and sister sleeping together and killed them both. The married Roxie Hart is a vaudeville wannabe who is dating a man who loves the night life. Her husband almost takes the blame for killing him until he realizes his wife is having an affair.

Both Kelly and Hart are sent to Cook County Jail along with a host of murderous mistresses. They share more than just a correctional facility, however, as Billy Flynn is both girls' lawyer. Flynn throws himself into Hart's defense and makes his client famous in the process. Her newfound fame has Kelly fuming, and the two are at odds.
