"Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago
is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously
murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate
to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate,
Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of
sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from
today's tabloids," explain press notes.
