Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her pushover husband, Amos, to take the rap until he turns on her. Hart is convicted and sent to death row where herself and another convicted murderess, Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and headlines, ultimately joining forces for in search of the “American Dream” and acquittal with the help of the slick and notorious lawyer Billy Flynn. “Chicago” is filled with memorable songs and dazzling choreography by Bob Fosse.
