Chicago - 1997 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

£26-£66

The musical exploration of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery - all those things that we hold dear to our hearts. CHICAGO follows not your usual housewife, Roxie Hart, who gains dubious notoriety when she kills her boyfriend, invents her defense and manipulates everyone from her trustworthy husband to the fickle media and the unsuspecting public. Featuring well-known songs - 'All That Jazz', 'Razzle Dazzle' and 'Mr. Cellophane' - and dances choreographed by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse. CHICAGO was written by Tony Award winners Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse with music by John Kander.



CHICAGO closed at the Cambridge Theatre on 27 August 2011. On Monday 7 November, the award-winning musical will open at the Garrick Theatre.

Running Time:

2 hours and 20 minutes, with one interval
