Chicago UK Tour 2021 – Chicago tour schedule and tickets

The razzle-dazzle is back as the Chicago UK Tour 2021 kicks off in Glasgow this September. Kander and Ebb’s history-making musical is now on sale.

Chicago UK Tour 2021

 

Casting has been announced for John Kander and Fred Ebb’s Chicago UK Tour 2021.

WHAT IS CHICAGO THE MUSICAL ABOUT?

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.

CHICAGO CREATIVE TEAM

Chicago is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.  The 1996 Broadway revival of Chicago was choreographed by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse, directed by Walter Bobbie, and produced by Barry and Fran Weissler.

We’ve been enjoying this great lockdown tribute to Chicago the musical but not it’s time to see it live!

WILL I KNOW SONGS FROM CHICAGO THE MUSICAL?

It’s more than likely given that this iconic score is overflowing with musical standards that have been heard worldwide.

Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse, Chicago’s sexy, sassy score includes the show-stopping songs “Razzle Dazzle”, “Cell Block Tango”, and “All That Jazz”.  Winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway and West End history. The film adaptation by Rob Marshall which won the Oscar for Best Picture is widely credited with bringing musicals back to the big screen.

WHO STARS IN CHICAGO THE MUSICAL UK TOUR?

West End and TV star Darren Day will play ‘Billy Flynn’ joining the previously announced Faye Brookes as ‘Roxie Hart’, Sinitta as ‘Mama Morton’, Divina De Campo as ‘Mary Sunshine’, Djalenga Scott as ‘Velma Kelly’ and Joel Montague as ‘Amos Hart’.

The cast will also include Ishmail Aaron, Michelle Andrews, Gabby Antrobus, Delycia Belgrave, Joel Benjamin, Tanisha-Mae Brown, Daniel Clift, Callum Fitzgerald, Emily Goodenough, Billie Hardy, Aaron Jenkins, Liam Marcellino, Theo Reece, Hollie Jane Stephens and Harrison Wilde.
