Hit musical Chicago playing at the New Wimbledon Theatre until 21st May

Sheila Ferguson stars as Mama Morton in the acclaimed UK and Ireland tour of the international smash hit musical Chicago.

She stars alongside Russell Watson as Billy Flynn, Faye Brookes as Roxie Hart, Djalenga Scott as Velma Kelly, Jamie Baughan as Amos Hart and B.E. Wong as Mary Sunshine.

Set amid 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.

It’s a winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy.

Chicago, which is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins.
