“Murder, greed, corruption, exploitation, adultery and treachery… all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts”… so begins the international award winning Broadway and West End musical, Chicago, which comes to Plymouth for one week only starring West End and EastEnders actor and Celebrity Big Brother star John Partridge (Cats, A Chorus Line, Miss Saigon, Starlight Express) as Billy Flynn.
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.
Chicago’s sexy, sassy score includes All That Jazz and Razzle Dazzle. With six Tony, two Olivier, a Grammy, two BAFTA and six 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.
