After a five-and-a-half-year
break Chicago has returned to London and is now ready to razzle dazzle the West
End! The award-winning musical officially opened on Wednesday 11th
April and will play at the Phoenix Theatre until 6th October 2018.
Set in a
county jail in Chicago, the hit musical by Kander & Ebb tells the story of
the rivalry between Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, two murderesses and performers
who fight to get notoriety through their celebrity criminal status. Lawyer
Billy Flynn will help them with that.
The cast of
the revival stars Cuba Gooding Jr, making his West End debut as Billy Flynn,
and Ruthie Henshall as Mama Morton. The two leading ladies Roxie and Velma are
played by Chicago alumni Sarah Soetaert and Josefina Gabrielle respectively.

and international tour. Sexy, sassy and seductive, Chicago features famous
songs and dance numbers such as All That Jazz, Cell Block Tango, When You’re
Good To Mama and Razzle Dazzle.
