Now showing, Open Run

The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system.

Photo Coverage: CHICAGO Welcomes Marco Zunino and Dylan Ratell!

The Broadway company of the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago just welcomed back Latin-American star Marco Zunino in the role of "that silver-tongued prince of the courtroom" Billy Flynn for 16 performances only, through June 14, 2015 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC). Addiionally, Dylan Ratell just joined the cmpany as Mary Sunshine.

A native of Lima, Peru, Marco Zunino began his acting career at the age of 14, having appeared in several Latin American soap operas and television miniseries. Later, he moved to America to study at New York City's Circle in the Square Theatre School. Upon returning to Lima, Zunino worked steadily starring in television soap operas and miniseries before starring in Latin American productions of Jesus Christ Superstar (Jesus), West Side Story (Tony), Rent (Roger) and Cabaret (Emcee), the latter of which earned him Peru's highest acting achievement in 2009. He earned the same acting honor in 2013 for his performance asPeter Allen the Latin American production of The Boy from Oz. Marco hosts the game show "Escape Perfecto" in Peru and he appears in the film No Estamos Solos opening in theaters through South America in October 2015. He is an ambassador for UNICEF.

Chicago currently stars Grammy Award winner Brandy Norwood as Roxie Hart (through June 21, 2015 only), international stage sensation Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron "Mama" Morton.

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.
