"If you can't be famous, be infamous"". Chicago, the winner of 6 Tony awards, is finally hitting the ADC stage.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a chorus girl who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover. Desperate to avoid conviction, she fools the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her crime into fame. Based on the real stories of two convicted female criminals and featuring smash hits such as ""Cell Block Tango"", ""All That Jazz"" and ""Razzle Dazzle"", Chicago questions the concept of 'the celebrity criminal'.

Not to be missed, Chicago is a unique tale of corruption, murder and seduction. Oh... and all that jazz.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
