The world’s longest-running American musical, the multi-award-winning CHICAGO, comes to Churchill Theatre Bromley. It would be a crime to miss this razzle-dazzle show as it returns to London for one week only! Be sure to book your Chicago tickets now or you might end up behind bars!
"Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery...all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts" So begins the international multi-award-winning musical, Chicago.
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 tabloid.
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 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations, Chicago truly is "SUPERB" (Daily Telegraph) and "remains a phenomenon" (Sunday Express).
We love the music, the dancing was great and the cast were amazing (although didnâ€™t think Sineta was right for the role of Mama). The band was brilliant.

Churchill Theatre is located in Bromley. Opened on 19th July 1977, it came a long way to become one of the most famous live entertainment venues in southeast London.
Every year, more than 150,000 people visit the theatre. It comprises a comfortable auditorium which features full air-conditioning as well as a seating capacity of 781. Among the building’s other modern facilities are its refreshment kiosks, bars, and large foyers.
The theatre’s diverse programme presents a wide variety of some of the industry’s best dance, musicals, drama, one-night events, family shows, comedy, and pantomime. The top-class technical facilities at the venue also provide the support required to launch the latest productions. Some of these features are extensive facilities for the workshop, two spacious rehearsal rooms, and a massive stage. Churchill Theatre boasts its ‘Bromley Premiere’, which lets the audiences see fresh, newly produced shows before it hits the West End or embarks on a national tour. It also highlights its studio space, which can be used for multiple purposes; from staging comedies and production previews to organising weekly Creative Learning classes.
The building also features a restaurant serving delicious food and drinks that make for a complete pre-show dining experience right from theatre seats. Visitors do not need to leave their comfort zone or rush for orders and miss the curtain up. There are also affordable entertainment-laden dining events at the theatre, which just cannot be missed!
The London Borough of Bromley built the theatre based on the layout by its borough architect’s department. Although created following the style of European opera houses, Churchill Theatre is an excellent example of a repertory theatre. They established the venue on the side of a hill, into the central library complex which overlooked the Library Gardens and Church House Gardens. The building was also created in such a way that it looked small. To achieve this effect, the size and number of the lower levels were concealed by creating the stage below ground level. Staircases descend from the foyer to provide access to the auditorium. Inaugurated by the Prince of Wales, the theatre now runs on a contract basis, which is currently under the possession of the HQ Theatres & Hospitality.
