Set in Chicago during the roaring 1920s and based on real-life murders and trials, CHICAGO follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her secret lover. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. Tensions come to a head as the two murderesses vie for the ultimate spotlight. Broadway’s longest-running American musical, CHICAGO is a female-driven powerhouse. It’s a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the American media machine set to one of Broadway’s greatest scores.

“Rothstein has made it urgent with a production that, while set in the Roaring ’20s, has a whisper of “Nowadays,” as one song title insists.
- Star Tribune

“If all the world’s a stage, it’s the play’s job to seize the spotlight and do everything possible to hold it. The Theater Latté Da production understands this. Boy, does it.”
- Pioneer Press

“This Peter Rothstein directed production brings out all of the glitz, humor, and biting social commentary of the piece, while putting the audience right in the middle of the action.”
- Cherry and Spoon

“Rothstein spreads the love around in a production that elevates the ensemble.” - City Pages

“Peter Rothstein has assembled a winning team who draw every ounce of satire and gallows humor out of the piece, while keeping spirits high with flashy staging and attention to the musical elements.” - Talkin’ Broadway
