What is it? Chicago tells the story of Roxy Hart, a housewife and dancer, who murders her lover after he threatens to leave her. While awaiting her trial she meets Velma Kelly in jail. After hiring Chicago’s best criminal lawyer to help her get publicity and convince everyone she’s innocent, Roxy finds the fame she’s always craved.

Chicago was made into a hit film starring Renée Zellweger, Richard Gere and Catherine Zeta Jones in 2002.
