Chicago features a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb, with a book by Bob Fosse & Fred Ebb. This revival production is directed by Walter Bobbie, with choreography by Ann Reinking.
Synopsis: "Chicago follows not your usual housewife, Roxie Hart, who gains dubious notoriety when she kills her boyfriend, invents her defence and manipulates everyone from her trustworthy husband to the fickle media and the unsuspecting public." The show features such showtune classics as 'All That Jazz,' 'Razzle Dazzle' and 'Mr. Cellophane.'
The creative team features scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer.
Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
The show is currently booking through to 2 July 2017.
