A THEATRICAL adaptation of Chicago is hoped to return to Venue Cymru stage this summer.

The multi-award-winning talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse will bring Chicago’s sexy and sassy score to life on the stage with one show-stopping song after another.

Set during the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago follows the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer 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 the city’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.

Amidst the dramatic twists and turns of the narrative and fabulous dancing will be memorable songs including ‘Razzle Dazzle’, ‘Cell Block Tango’ and ‘All That Jazz’.

With six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations, Chicago truly is one not to miss.

Shows are scheduled to take place from August 30 to September 4.

Tickets are priced from £15.50 to £54.
