All He Cares About is Love! Cuba Gooding Jr. to Play Billy Flynn in CHICAGO's West End Return
The murderous musical hit, Chicago, will return to London's West End!
The show will mark Gooding's UK stage debut. According to Baz the star has the singing chops to do the role, but is working formally with a vocal coach for his big West End debut!
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.
