CHICAGO RETURNS TO LEEDS GRAND THEATRE IN 2022

CHICAGO, the ‘sexiest musical ever’ (Metro) was back in Leeds for one week only from Tuesday 10 – Saturday 14 May 2022.

One of the world’s greatest classical singers, Russell Watson, stars as Billy Flynn, and Three Degrees soul sensation Sheila Ferguson will star as Mama Morton, joining Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes (Dancing On Ice, Grease, Legally Blonde) as Roxie Hart, West End star Djalenga Scott (Annie, Chicago, West Side Story) as Velma Kelly, Jamie Baughan as Amos Hart and B.E. Wong as Mary Sunshine.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is 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 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 includes the show-stopping songs Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango, and All That Jazz.  Winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy, CHICAGO is the longest running American musical in Broadway and West End history. 

Book now. It would be criminal to miss it…

CHICAGO was at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 10 – Saturday 14 May 2022.
