Reunion cast for Chicago birthday

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

It will be something of a reunion for Chicago this autumn as a cast of familiar faces rejoin the musical at the Cambridge in time for its 10th birthday.

From 5 November, Amra-Faye Wright, Frances Ruffelle, Terence Maynard, Paul Rider and Sue Kelvin, all of whom have previously starred in the show during its decade-long London run, will return to the roles of Velma Kelly, Roxie Hart, Billy Flynn, Amos Hart and Mama Morton.

This production of Kander and Ebb’s musical Chicago opened at the Adelphi on 18 November 1997 starring Ruthie Henshall and Ute Lemper as murdering showgirls Roxie and Velma, and Henry Goodman as sleazy lawyer Billy Flynn. Since then, numerous West End stars and familiar names have flashed their jazz hands at the Adelphi and, as of April 2006, the Cambridge, including Denise Van Outen, Claire Sweeney, Duncan James, Marti Pellow, Jennifer Ellison, Gaby Roslin, David Hasselhoff, Alison Moyet and Darius Danesh. The show currently stars Josefina Gabrielle, Annette McLaughlin and Clive Rowe, plus Kelly Osbourne as the show’s youngest ever Mama Morton.

While 18 November falls on a Sunday this year, the show will officially celebrate a decade of razzle and dazzle with a star-studded gala performance and black tie reception on 5 December, in aid of Breast Cancer charities. em>CB
