Chicago to return for West End run
Chicago is to return to the West End next year following a five-year absence.
The Kander and Ebb musical will run at the Phoenix Theatre from March 26, and is booking until June 30.
Chicago originally ran in London for 15 years, closing in 2012.
It has been presented in London, New York and on international and UK tours, produced by Barry and Fran Weissler.
They said: “This year we celebrated the production’s 21st anniversary and had our most successful year to date. Chicago is as relevant and timely as the day we opened. After spending the last several years touring throughout the UK it feels like we never really left, but we are thrilled to bring the razzle dazzle back to the West End.”
The musical has music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. It is directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Ann Reinking.
