Following a successful UK and international tour, Chicago will be transferring into London's West End, playing at the Phoenix Theatre from Monday 26 March 2018.
Though casting is still to be confirmed, tickets are now on sale with booking currently running through until 23 June 2018.
Chicago originally ran in London for 15 years, making it the West End's longest running revival.
It first opened at the Adelphi Theatre on 18 November 1997 to rave reviews and immediately became a sell-out hit.
It won the 1998 Laurence Olivier Award for 'Outstanding Musical Production' as well as the 1998 Critics Circle Drama Award for 'Best Musical'.
The show transferred from the Adelphi Theatre to the Cambridge Theatre in April 2006, where it ran for five years, and then opened at the Garrick Theatre on 7 November 2011, where it ran until 1 September 2012.
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."
Some facts about the show are pretty amazing ...
Since it opened in New York in 1996, Chicago has played in 36 countries worldwide, and been performed in English, Dutch, German, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, French, Danish, Japanese and Korean.
And it has grossed a staggering $1.5 billion worldwide and played over 30,000 performances worldwide, with an estimated 31 million people around the world having seen the show!
Chicago is also still going strong on Broadway, where it recently celebrated its 21st birthday, and around the world.
The musical is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins and has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.
The 1996 Broadway revival of Chicago was choreographed by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse, directed by Walter Bobbie, and produced by Barry and Fran Weissler.
