Six-time Tony award-winning musical tours from March
Chicago: The Musical is set to head out on a UK-wide tour throughout 2021. The musical will stop in Birmingham, Sunderland, Liverpool, Woking and more from March. Tickets for all dates are available at 10am on Thu 18 Jun.
Set in the midst of the decadent 1920s, Chicago: The Musical follows the life of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. In a desperate attempt to avoid conviction, Roxie hires Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. Can she dupe the public, the media and her rival cellmate Velma Kelly?
From musical theatre talents John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Foss, Chicago continues to receive standing ovations across the globe. Since its Broadway premiere back in 1975, the production has bagged six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy among a long list of other accolades. The 2021 touring production brings world-famous hits 'Razzle Dazzle', 'Cell Block Tango', and 'All That Jazz' to venues across the UK next spring.
