Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak


London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.


Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.


Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.


We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

Show details

Synopsis


Set amidst 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 with one show-stopping song after another includes Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango, and All That Jazz.


With 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations, CHICAGO truly is "superb" (Daily Telegraph) and "remains a phenomenon" (Sunday Express).
