A nightclub singer, a double-murderess, a smooth-talking lawyer and a cell block of sin….. so the story unfolds for the award-winning Broadway and West End musical Chicago is here in Singapore at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands from 8 February for a limited season. We caught the show opening and it was wicked and fabulous! Tickets are now on sale.
With a total of six Tony, two Olivier, one Grammy, two Bafta and six Academy Awards, and the ability to draw thousands of standing ovations, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway and West End history, and truly is “The sharpest, slickest show on the block” (The Times, UK).
CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway and the West End great – a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz with one show-stopping song after another, including Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango and All That Jazz. It boasts the sexiest, most sensational dancing; and a sharply sophisticated set which incorporates the 11-piece orchestra. An estimated 30 million people worldwide have seen CHICAGO, which has played over 29,000 performances.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer with ambitions of Vaudeville stardom, who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her.
Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
Chicago is a stunning spectacle filled with social satire, intrigue, love, betrayal, rivalry and friendship; a pageant of music and dance that adroitly shifts between reality and fantasy, as Roxie Hart’s world moves from prison to the courtroom to the stage.
