CHICAGO, the “sexiest musical ever” (Metro) is going back on Tour and is confirmed to return to the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on 14 – 19 February 2022 with a brand new cast.
Entertaining the Eastbourne audiences will be Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes (Dancing On Ice, Grease, Legally Blonde) as Roxie Hart, international recording artist and pop star Sinitta as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Divina De Campo as Mary Sunshine, plus West End stars Djalenga Scott (Annie, Chicago, West Side Story) as Velma Kelly and Joel Montague (Waitress, Fat Friends, School of Rock) as Amos Hart.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart (Faye Brookes), a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her.
Desperate to avoid conviction, Roxie 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 of course All That Jazz. The show boasts 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations.
Don’t miss out, book now! It would be criminal to miss it…
