There’s nothing jazzier than the women’s block at Cook County Jail. Following a murderous pair of fame-hungry vaudevillian broads, Broadway’s award-winning Chicago delivers one show-stopping song after another. But the beloved musical almost never happened. Chicago reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins first wrote a play in 1926 inspired by her time covering ladies who offed their lovers. When Bob Fosse approached her for the rights, the born-again Christian refused. Upon her death in 1969, the famed director was given the right to transform her scandalous words into an institution. $30-$100, through Sunday, February 1, Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
