‘Still the sexiest, most sensational musical’ Sunday Express

Based on real life events back in the roaring 1920’s, nightclub singer Roxie Hart (Ali Bastion - Hollyoaks, The Bill) shoots her lover; and along with Cell Block rival, double murderess Velma Kelly (Tupele Dorgu Coronation Street), they fight to keep from death row with the help of prison matron, Mama Morton (Bernie Nolan) and smooth talking lawyer, Billy Flynn (Stefan Booth Eastenders). Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse, CHICAGO’s sexy, sassy score features one show stopping song after another including “All That Jazz” and “Razzle Dazzle”. No wonder it’s become a runaway success in over 250 cities worldwide, earning six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations, CHICAGO truly is “The sharpest, slickest show on the block” The Times. So come on, babe! Head to the one, the only CHICAGO!
