CHICAGO THE MUSICAL TOUR

Chicago tour

 

David Ian for Crossroads Live in association with Barry and Fran Weissler have just announced the new 2024/2025 UK tour of the multi award-winning musical CHICAGO which opens at Milton Keynes Theatre on 12th October 2024. The last UK tour ended in July 2022.

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 and tries to pin it on her downtrodden husband Amos. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly who is a famous star and also a murderess., 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

Both women will be hanged for their crimes if they lose their cases and will go to any lengths to escape execution. So they form an unusual nightclub act, which they hope will keep them in the public eye and earn them fame, fortune and freedom. They enlist the help of sleazy lawyer Billy Flynn to assist them.

The musical includes some fantastic numbers including: All That Jazz, Razzle Dazzle and Cell Block Tango.The music is by John Kander with lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse. Directed by Walter Bobbie with choreography by Ann Reinking.

Since it opened in New York in 1996, CHICAGO has played in 38 countries worldwide, and been performed in English, Dutch, German, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, French, Danish, Japanese and Korean.  Worldwide it has been seen by an estimated 34 million people, grossed over $1.7 billion has played over 33,500 performances.
