Chicago is officially back home in London’s West End and is now starring Martin Kemp, from pop legends Spandau Ballet and BBC’s EastEnders, as Billy Flynn & Alexandra Burke as Roxie Hart.
Following multiple West End runs and tours, the smash-hit musical Chicago returns to the London stage. Chicago is the multi-award winning musical, swiping six Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, and two Olivier Awards including Outstanding Musical Production.
Based on reporter Maureen Dallas Watkins’ 1926 play of the same name, Chicago is the thrilling tale of performers turned murderess’ that is pulled from real life events in the roaring 1920’s. When Roxie Hart is wronged by a man, she pulls a gun and winds up in Cook County Jail, alongside cell-block rival, and nightclub star, Velma Kelly.
Soon, the pair are fighting to keep from Death Row, as they dance their way through musical numbers, accompanied by the smooth-talking Billy Flynn and matronly Mama Morton. With a sumptuous score including thrilling numbers such as “All That Jazz”, “Cell Block Tango”, “Roxie” and “Razzle Dazzle”, this red-hot musical has enjoyed global success.
Well-known as the 2002 film starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger and Richard Gere, the musical was last seen in the West End in 1997.
