CHICAGO, the "sexiest musical ever" (Metro) is back in Southampton in 2021.
"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 tabloids.
Starring Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes as Roxie Hart, international recording artist and pop star Sinitta as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton, West End and TV star Darren Day as Billy Flynn, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Divina De Campo as Mary Sunshine, and West End stars Djalenga Scott as Velma Kelly and Joel Montague as Amos Hart.
