“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 Plymouth for one week only starring Ali Bastian as Roxie Hart, Stefan Booth as Billy Flynn 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 smoothtalking lawyer and a cell block of sin: it would be a crime to miss it.
