CHICAGO, one of the most sensational musicals in theatre history, is going back on tour and that is especially good news for the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne which is one of the prime dates on this itinerary.
The show is return to the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on February 14-19 2022 with a
brand new all-star cast which includes Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes (Dancing On Ice, Grease, Legally Blonde) as Roxie Hart, international recording artist and pop star Sinitta as Matron ‘Mama’ Morton, UK star Divina De Campo as Mary Sunshine, plus West End stars Djalenga Scott (Annie, Chicago, West Side Story) as Velma Kelly and Joel Montague (Waitress, Fat Friends, School of Rock) as Amos Hart.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart (Faye Brookes), a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her.
Desperate to avoid conviction, Roxie 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.
Created by the musical theatre talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary
choreographer Bob Fosse, Chicago’s sexy, sassy score with one show-stopping song after another includes; Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango, and of course All That Jazz.
The show boasts 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations.
