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.

Willis began her acting career as a child starring opposite her mother Demi Moore in the films Striptease and Now and Then. Her stage credits include Love, Loss and What I Wore (Off-Broadway); For the Record Live's Dear John Hughes, Baz Luhrmann's DBA and FTR: Tarantino. Her TV credits include "Workaholics," "Pretty Little Liars," "Hawaii 5-0," "Songbyrd" (E! pilot) and more. Her film credits include House Bunny, Sorority Row, Diary of Preston Plummer and more. Rumer is working on her debut album alongside producer Linda Perry. Her band had a nearly 2 year Artist Residency at Hollywood's The Sayer's Club. Follow her on Twitter: @TheRue and on Instagram: @RueLaRue.

Chicago currently stars Grammy Award winner Brandy Norwood as Roxie Hart (through August 2, 2015 only), international stage sensation Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Ivan Hernandez as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron "Mama" Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 TONY AWARDS including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.

Directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, Chicago features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer.

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.
