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.   TICKET INFORMATIONBuy tickets for Chicago now for any performance through January 17, 2022, and you can either exchange or refund your tickets into any other date until 48 hours before the performance.
