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

VIDEO: CHICAGO Flyer Woman, Allison Martin, Defies ISIS Threats On Times Square In theatreMAMA's #Unafraid

After making your way through Times Square's sea of Elmos in need of dry cleaning and super heroes less-than-heroically pressuring tourists for bigger tips, you're bound run into one of the delightful young ladies sporting bowler hats and Fosse finery handing out flyers for the hit Broadway revival of Chicago.

One such jazzy lady, Allison Martin, wrote, directed and stars in this beautiful video, #Unafraid, released by the marketing agency theatreMAMA, about the strength of New Yorkers to not be afraid of ISIS threats of terrorist strikes in New York.

As Allison spends her work days mingling with strangers in one of the world's most popular tourist centers, she eyes them with love, not suspicion, and does not let fear dictate her life.

theatreMAMA is an experiential and digital marketing agency for the performing arts industry, located in the heart of New York City. They specialize in bringing brand narratives to life through sensory experiences and interactive digital campaigns that are measurable and memorable, working with agencies, artists, marketing directors, owners, managers, curators and individuals to craft and produce custom "living media" and digital experiences of any size or scale.

Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago welcomes actress and TV sensation NeNe Leakes (Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"), returning to Broadway for four weeks only in the role of Matron "Mama" Morton, through December 20, 2015 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC).

Chicago currently stars Dylis Croman as Roxie Hart (thru Nov. 29 only - Bianca Marroquin returns Nov. 30), international stage sensation Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly (thru Nov. 29 only - Terra MacLeod returns Nov. 30), Jason Danieley as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, 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, Chicagofeatures set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winnerWilliam Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and sound design byScott 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 hiringChicago'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.
