Variete Theater


Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials, follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters.



The first première staged at the Kraków Variete Theatre was at the same time the first opportunity to see Legally Blonde in Poland, a musical based on the novel of Amanda Brown and the film of the same name.


We do seem to appreciate the tunes we have known forever - the VARIETE FILM SHOW is a great opportunity to go back and once again enjoy the hit music from the greatest film classics in new and engaging orchestration.
