CHICAGO, the sexiest musical ever (Metro) is back at Leeds Grand Theatre in May for one week only starring one of the world’s greatest classical singers, Russell Watson, as Billy Flynn, Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes (Dancing On Ice, Grease, Legally Blonde) as Roxie Hart, Three Degrees legend Sheila Ferguson (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Soul Train, Oh! What A Night) as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton and West End star Djalenga Scott (Annie, West Side Story) as Velma Kelly.
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.
Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse, CHICAGO’s sexy, sassy score with one show-stopping song after another includes Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango and All That Jazz.
With six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations, CHICAGO truly is ‘Superb’ (TELEGRAPH).
