Chicago

Chicago, the “sexiest musical ever” (Metro) is back in Northampton in October for 1 week only starring Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes (Dancing On Ice, Grease, Legally Blonde) as Roxie Hart, international recording artist and pop star Sinitta as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton, West End and TV star Darren Day(Joseph, We Will Rock You, Doctors, Celebrity Big Brother) as Billy Flynn, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Divina De Campo as Mary Sunshine, and West End stars Djalenga Scott (Annie, Chicago, West Side Story) as Velma Kelly and Joel Montague (WaitressFat FriendsSchool of Rock) as Amos Hart.


“Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery…all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts” So begins the international multi-award-winning musical, CHICAGO.


Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.


Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob FosseChicago’s sexy, sassy score with one show-stopping song after another includes Razzle DazzleCell Block Tango, and All That Jazz. With six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations, Chicago  “remains a phenomenon” (Sunday Express).


Don’t miss out, book now! It would be criminal to miss it…
