Description

Come on, Babe! If you’re looking for razzle-dazzle entertainment… If you’re looking for a night out at the theater you’ll remember for years to come… If you're looking for pure Broadway… then look no further than Chicago!

A true New York City institution, Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping-song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards®, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations. It’s also no surprise that Chicago has wowed audiences all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa.

But the hottest place to experience it is on Broadway. There’s always someone fabulous center stage. Whether you’re looking for your first Broadway musical… whether you’ve seen the Academy Award®-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage… or whether you’ve seen it before and want to recapture the magic, Chicago always delivers. 

Chicago is a classic. It’s the show you can always count on to give you the thrills and memories that only come from seeing a Broadway musical.
