When Chicago the Musical hit London's Garrick Theatre, the razzle-dazzle of the jazz age was transferred to stage with glitter,
glam and fishnet stockings in spades. Set in the 1920s, Chicago the Musical tells the story of beautiful women known
for killing their lovers and subsequently becoming the stars of 'Murderess Row'. Marrying the best elements from vaudeville
and burlesque entertainment, the UK revival of Chicago the Musical honours the original, whose Bob Fosse-crafted
choreography remains legendary to this day.
A smashing sensation in London's West End since 1997, Chicago the Musical is still going strong. On StubHub! UK you can track down Chicago the Musical
tickets and join the over 17 million fans who have already experienced this awe-inspiring stage spectacle.
Chicago the Musical revolves around the story of the alluring Miss Roxie Hart, an unassuming beauty who becomes
front page news after murdering her husband. First introduced to the audience as a shrinking violet of sorts, Roxie is soon
transformed by the attention showered upon her case. Battling fellow vamp Velma Kelly for the limelight, Roxie fights for
acquittal and revels in attention gained from her newfound notoriety.
Chicago was originally a play written in 1924 by Maurine Dallas Watkins. Dallas Watkins based her play on true
events encountered as a journalist covering crimes of passion for the Chicago Tribune. In the 1970s Bob Fosse acquired
the rights for the play and, with John Kander and Fred Ebb, came to create one of the most powerful musical experiences of
our time. This satire sparkles with hits like 'All That Jazz' and 'Cell Block Tango', among other memorable songs, providing
the soundtrack for Roxie and Co.'s exploits.
International talents including Ashlee Simpson and Brooke Shields have starred in the London production of Chicago
over the years. But, no matter who assumes the roles of Roxie, Velma, slick lawyer Billy Flynn and more, one thing is guaranteed:
Chicago the Musical is a consistently entertaining treat for UK audiences.
