Why See Chicago?
Chicago Returns To The West End
After six years away from the West End the infamous Chicago returns this March! Join Roxie and her merry murderesses as they battle for fame and freedom in this satirical look at the world of celebrity and justice. Set in the roaring twenties Chicago has everything you want from a musical, sex, murder and good old Razzle Dazzle that has you intoxicated from start to finish.
With hit tunes like 'Cell Block Tango', 'Razzle Dazzle' and 'All That Jazz' as well as the sassy original choreography by the great Bob Fosse, Chicago breathed a sense of fresh air onto the stage when it first opened in Broadway in 1975. Now 40+ years on Chicago is heralded as a pioneer of both Broadway and the West End and is a firm favourite in countries across the world. The 1997 revival ran on London's West End for 15 years and won an Olivier Award before closing in 2012. Now for 2018 Chicago is back, London are you ready?
What Is Chicago About?
Set in the Prohibition Era in Chicago famed vaudeville performer Velma Kelly is incarcerated behind bars awaiting trial for murdering her cheating husband and her traitorous sister. Fortunately Billy Flynn a renowned lawyer with a perfect track record, and a master at manipulating public opinion in favour of his clients is on her defence team. Everything is looking rosy until Roxie Hart a fame hungry wannabe turns up. After being accused of killing her lover Roxie sets about stealing both Velma's limelight, and her lawyer.
Each battling for their 15 minutes of fame, the women go head to head in the race to become Chicago's most notorious criminal, and escape the rope.
