Alexandra Burke and Duncan James have extended their runs in the West End production of Chicago due to popular demand, while Josefina Gabrielle will rejoin the cast later this month.
Having both joined the Chicago cast this autumn, Burke and James will continue as Roxie Hart and Billy Flynn (until 10 and 17 November respectively). Gabrielle will resume playing the role of Velma Kelly from 22 October until 5 January 2019, with Laura Tyrer playing her final performance in the role on 20 October.
Both Burke and James will have breaks from the show; Burke will not appear between 15 – 24 October (with Sarah Soetaert covering the role in this time) and Duncan James will not appear between 6 – 12 November.
Mazz Murray continues to play Mama Morton and Paul Rider continues to play Amos Hart.
Set in prohibition Chicago, the musical tells the story of two rival performers – and murderesses – locked up in the same County Jail, and satirises corruption within the criminal justice system. Expect sexy, sassy and dangerously seductive songs, dance and events to unfold.
