Chicago, the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, has delighted audiences around the world with its two Vaudevillian criminals Roxie and Velma. The pair are sent to Cook County Jail after they both commit murders, and the show takes you through their crimes, time in prison and subsequent trials. It’s set to a classic soundtrack featuring showstoppers such as “All That Jazz”, “Razzle Dazzle” and “The Cell Block Tango”.

After originally premiering at the 46th Street Theatre in 1975 in a production directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse, the musical became a cult hit thanks to its exceptional performances and catchy score by John Kander and Fred Ebb. The first London production opened in the West End at the Cambridge Theatre in 1979 where it ran for over 600 performances, starring Jenny Logan, Ben Cross and Antonia Ellis. It went on to be nominated for Musical of the Year at the Olivier Awards.
