Chicago The Musical (New Broadway Cast Recording)
- Cast Recording
With music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Ebb and Bob Fosse, Chicago is jazz-age musical based on a 1920s play of the same name. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the "celebrity criminal". Roxie Hart is sent to prison for killing a man who tried to walk out on her. While in prison she meets Velma Kelly, a big-time vaudeville star with twice as much blood on her hands. The two vie for the same lawyer, Billy Flynn, to help win their freedom and play the public from prison to help win fame for when they’re finally free.
