London’s sure-fire hit Chicago stars the record-breaking number one artist and winner of The X Factor, Alexandra Burke, following her leading role in The Bodyguard and as a finalist on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, now performing an extended run until 10 November. Starring alongside her in the role of Billy Flynn is Duncan James, multi-million-selling singer with the band Blue, and star of the West End’s Legally Blonde, until 17 November.
Winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy, the sexiest, sassiest, most sophisticated Broadway musical in history is still as dangerously exciting as ever.
The dazzling tale of jazz slayer Roxie Hart, her cell-block rival Velma Kelly and the smooth-talking lawyer Billy Flynn has thrilled audiences across the world since 1996.
With the original Broadway choreography by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse and a sizzling score featuring the classic songs “Razzle Dazzle”, “Cell Block Tango” and “All That Jazz”, Chicago is so good it should be illegal.
Chicago is playing at the Phoenix Theatre until 5 January 2019.
Book now, it’d be a crime to miss it…
