In 1920s Chicago, fame-hungry Roxie Hart dreams of a life on the vaudeville stage, and spends her nights jazz-ing it up in the bright lights of the city, continually hoping that she’ll find her lucky break and be shot into stardom so she can flee her boring husband, Amos.
That boring husband refuses to take the blame when she shoots her lover and ends up in prison, pending hanging. There, she meets seductive nightclub performer turned double-murderess Velma Kelly and smooth-talking lawyer Billy Flynn, and pulls every trick in the book to get off death row and out into the limelight of the Roaring ’20s.
With help from Matron Mama Morton, both Roxie and Velma vie for the spot as Illinois’ most-famed murderess, but there’s only room for one legend — “That’s Chicago.”
