The musical is set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s. It follows the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she decides to dupe the public, media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly. She does this by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.
