Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, "Chicago" is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who 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.
Eddie George joins the tour of "Chicago" following a successful limited engagement in the same role at the Ambassador Theatre on Broadway in 2016. Prior to taking the stage in "Chicago," Eddie appeared in such works as Matthew Lopez’s "The Whipping Man" (Nashville Repertory Theatre), Suzan-Lori Parks’ "Topdog/Underdog" (Amun Ra Theatre) and in the title roles of both "Othello" and "Julius Caesar" at the Nashville Shakespeare Festival.
"Chicago" is the #1 Longest Running American Musical and the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
