What Discount Chicago Tickets Offer
Chicago is the sordid tale of the murders committed by two female performers in Chicago during the prohibition era. The story is based on a play written by Maurine Dallas Watkins, a reporter that covered two 1924 murder trials of two women on which the characters in her story are loosely based. The story revolves around two main characters; vaudevillian Velma Kelly, who murdered her husband and sister when she found them in bed together, and Roxie Hart, a chorus girl who killed her lover and frequent nightclub guest Fred Casely. The two wind up in prison together for a time, in a twisted tale that involves sex, love and show business.
The first cheap Chicago tickets were sold on Broadway in 1975, when Gwen Verdon and Chita Rivera co-starred as the two young female performers and Bob Fosse directed and choreographed. The show received mixed reviews at the time, particularly in light of the fact that Chorus Line opened on Broadway the same year, stealing much of Chicago’s thunder. The revival in 1996 actually sold more discount Chicago tickets, as audiences flocked to see Ann Reinking, Bebe Neuwirth and Joel Grey. The show won six Tony awards – the most ever awarded to a revival show. The show also paved the way of a major motion picture in 2002 that furthered the success of the live show as well.
