Chicago, the internationally acclaimed Kander & Ebb musical, returned to the West End in March earlier this year, having originally played in London for 15 years.

Set in prohibition Chicago, Chicago tells the story of two rival performers – and murderesses – locked up in the same County Jail, and satirises corruption within the criminal justice system. Its numerous hit songs include All That Jazz, Cell Block Tango and Razzle Dazzle.

The show is booking at the Phoenix Theatre until 5 January 2019.
