Chicago brings razzle dazzle back to London’s West End

The world’s longest running American musical, the multi award-winning Chicago, returns to London’s West End after more than five years absence.

Following a UK and international tour, Chicago will be transferring into London, with performances at the Phoenix Theatre from March.

Barry Weissler, who, along with his wife Fran, has produced the show in New York, London and around the world, 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.”

Chicago originally ran in London for 15 years, making it the West End’s longest running revival.

The show is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, and has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.

Chicago runs at Phoenix Theatre from March 26 and booking until June 30.
