A Broadway phenomenon since its inception in 1975, Chicago puts the BAD in, well bad-ass dames. A scorching musical satire on celebrity and crime, Chicago is a fearless portrayal of the pursuit of infamy that rings true in any decade. Set in 1920s Chicago, the tale focuses on two women both accused of murdering their lovers, and their insidious journey to freedom, justice be damned. The world's longest musical revival is currently on a hugely successful North American tour, so break out the fishnet gloves, tap shoes and practise your jazz hands!

Officially re-opening in June 2018! The oldest continually operating theatre in Boston, The Emerson Colonial first opened in 1900 with a spectacular production of Ben Hur, which required a cast and crew of 350 people. Due to its size, it continues to this day to host big scale touring shows which struggle to find venues large enough in other cities.
