CHICAGO is still the one musical with everything that makes Broadway shimmy-shake: a universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, with one showstopping song after another and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. In the whirlwind of Chicago’s Jazz Age, two of the Cook County Jail’s most notorious murderesses—vaudeville star Velma Kelly and chorus girl Roxie Hart—become fierce rivals as they compete for headlines amidst
a media frenzy.

Broadway’s longest-running musical has been razzle dazzling audiences for 27 years, and after more than 10,000 performances, 6 Tony Awards®, 2 Olivier Awards, and a Grammy®, we’re just getting started.

CHICAGO may not be for all ages - we invite our patrons to research and evaluate the production based on personal values prior to ordering.

Consider pre-show dining at the Midland Center for the Arts! Avoid the rush, arrive early, and enjoy a sensational prix fixe dinner before the FRI, MAY 17 CHICAGO performance! Click here to view the menu and learn more.
