It’s been on our ‘wish list’ for years….but we’re delighted to finally announce that Willoughby Theatre Company will be staging the six-time Tony Award winning show – CHICAGO – in October 2017.
In roaring twenties Chicago, chorus girl Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap... until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal.
This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse – including Cell Block Tango, Mr. Cellophane , When You’re Good to Mama and, of course, All That Jazz. Get set for plenty of “Razzle Dazzle” – this one’s going to be special.
