Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, and is considered one of Bob Fosse’s greatest works. Based on the 1926 play of the same name, Chicago tells the tale of “merry murderesses” Velma Kelly, who murdered her husband and sister when she found them in bed together, and Roxie Hart, who murdered her lover. The two women pursue fame, fortune and acquittal, as Cabrillo Stage puts its always-fantastic touch on the beloved production.
