Chicago the Musical Returning to Winnipeg in November

Chicago the Musical returns to the Centennial Concert Hall November 7-8. (HANDOUT)

The acclaimed musical Chicago is coming back to Winnipeg this fall for two performances at the Centennial Concert Hall.

Chicago, the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, plays November 7-8.

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.

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 7 at 10 a.m. through CentennialConcertHall.com, by calling (204) 949-3999 or in-person at the venue starting at $44.
