This autumn a new chapter opens in the history of Broadway’s most successful show.
Having snatched the crown of the longest running American musical from A Chorus Line, the London production of Chicago returns to the West End from 7th November at its new home; the Garrick Theatre.
Entering what will be its 15th year in London, this universal tale of fame, fortune and… all that jazz, recounts the kiss-and-tell tale of chorus girl Roxie Hart who kills her lover; her rivalry with glamorous double-murderer Velma Kelly and their slick lawyer, Billy Flynn’s attempts to keep his clients from Death Row.
From the unforgettable first blast of All That Jazz right through to the last note of its sizzling jazz-drenched score and from the sensuous choreography inspired by the legendary Bob Fosse to its sensational performers, Chicago is a musical phenomenon like no other.
‘Still the hottest show in town’ The Independent.
‘A sleek package of sex, murder, great songs and arch wit’ Evening Standard.
