“Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery ........ all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts”
So begins the international award winning musical, CHICAGO, which comes to the Grand Opera House York for one week only starring Ali Bastian (Hollyoaks, The Bill) as Roxie Hart, Stefan Booth (Eastenders) as Billy Flynn, Tupele Dorgu (Coronation Street) as Velma Kelly, and Bernie Nolan as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton.
Based on real life events back in the roaring 1920s, nightclub singer Roxie Hart shoots her lover and along with Cell Block rival, double-murderess Velma Kelly, they fight to keep from death row with the help of smooth talking lawyer, Billy Flynn.
Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse, CHICAGO’s sexy, sassy score includes “All That Jazz” and “Razzle Dazzle”. With 6 Tony, 2 Olivier, 1 Grammy, 2 Bafta and 6 Academy Awards, CHICAGO truly is “The sharpest, slickest show on the block” The Times
A nightclub singer, a double-murderess, a smooth-talking lawyer and a cell block of sin: it would be a crime to miss it.
