After 11 years, the hit musical, Chicago returns to South Africa with a multi-talented all-South African touring cast, band and crew, ahead of an international tour to New Zealand and China.
Based on real life events back in the roaring 1920s, jazz slayer 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 score includes “All That Jazz” and “Razzle Dazzle”. The musical has also won 6 Tony’s, 2 Olivier’s, 1 Grammy, 2 BAFTA’s and 6 Academy Awards, and stars Samantha Peo, Ilse Klink, Craig Urbani, KJ Haupt, Carmen Pretorius and Grant Towers.
