There are still special offer tickets available for the final few performances at the Cambridge Theatre, currently starring Jonathan Wilkes.

Supermodel Christine Brinkley recently made her debut in the London show after wowing Broadway with her performance as Roxie Hart.

Chicago opened at the Adelphi Theatre on 18 November 1997 and won the 1998 Olivier Award for ‘Outstanding Musical Production’. The show transferred from the Adelphi Theatre to the Cambridge Theatre in April 2006.

On the same day that the show closes in London, the original Broadway production will celebrate its 6,138 performance on the Great White Way, beating A Chorus Line’s record to make it the fourth longest-running show in Broadway history.

Chicago 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. The show’s entire original Broadway creative team staged the West End production including choreography by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse and direction by Walter Bobbie.
