A Playhouse production presents Chicago the musical Tuesday 26th November 2019 to Sunday 1st December 2019 Tues 26th- Sat 30th, 8pmMatinee Sunday 1st December, 3pm

A story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery.

Featuring Broadway hits such as All That Jazz, Mister Cellophane and The Cell Block Tango, this production is not to be missed.

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. 

Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…
