“Fosse’s best work, uncompromising and with real strength showing in every idea and image.”—Newsweek

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb

In 1920s Chicago, Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap ... until he finds out he's been duped. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess"—Velma Kelly—vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the American Dream: fame, fortune ... and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire is complemented by a dazzling score.

From orchestras, bands and choirs to jazz, world music and opera to world-class faculty and guest performances, the CU Boulder College of Music. brings hundreds of stunning performances to Boulder audiences throughout the academic year.
