Chicago: The longest-running American musical in Broadway history

08:00 pm to 10:00 am on Oct 11
IU Auditorium

There’s never been a better time to experience CHICAGO, Broadway’s razzle-dazzle smash. This triumphant hit musical—the recipient of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy, and thousands of standing ovations—is now the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!

CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, accompanied by one show-stopping number after another, including “Cell Block Tango,” “Roxie,” and Mama Morton’s unforgettable “When You’re Good to Mama.” After its success on the stage, the show was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film in 2002. It’s no surprise that CHICAGO has wowed audiences from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa, and will make its way to Bloomington this fall!

Whether it’s your first Broadway musical experience or your 10th time seeing the show, CHICAGO always delivers!
