Chicago Returns to the West End

Until 6 Oct | Phoenix Theatre

There are few actors in the West End deemed smooth enough to take on the lead role of Billy Flynn. But after a five-and-a-half year hiatus from London, the multi-award winning musical Chicago has made its return, now with Martin Kemp at the helm.

Until 1 September, Kemp, of Spandau Ballet and Eastenders fame, will join the cast to tell the story of devious duo Roxie and Velma, locked up for murdering their partners. An estimated 31 million people around the world have seen the hit musical, so if you’re not one of them, we recommend you get involved and see what everyone’s talking about.
