This multiple award-winning musical tells the universal tale of fame, fortune, murder and all that jazz with one show-stopping number after another.

Set in Prohibition-era Chicago and based on actual crimes from the era, “Chicago” is a satire packed with glamour and glitz and a host of unforgettable characters. And this production of it is a special treat: performance rights to “Chicago” haven’t been available to regional theaters in more than a decade — until now.

Details: Opens Friday. 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, 5 p.m. Sundays through June 28. $40-$45. 512-476-0084, www.austinplayhouse.ticketleap.com/chicago.
