Sarah Soetaert, Josefina Gabrielle and Ruthie Henshall will be joining Oscar winner, Cuba Gooding Jr, in the multi award-winning West End revival of CHICAGO this Spring.
All three actresses have previously starred in Chicago, with Ruthie Henshall set to become the only British actress to play all three leading roles.
Henshall originated the role of Roxie Hart in London’s West End in 1997, returned to play Velma Kelly, and will now play Mamma Morton.
Ruthie’s musical theatre career spans four decades, beginning with Cats at the New London, followed by Miss Saigon, Children of Eden, Les Misérables, Crazy For You, Oliver!, She Loves Me (for which she won the Olivier Award), Peggy Sue Got Married, The Woman in White, Marguerite, and, most recently, Billy Elliot.
Sarah Soetaert will be recreating the role of Roxie Hart, the role she previously played at the Cambride and Garrick Theatres. Her other theatre work includes Cats, Carousel, Fame, Kiss Me Kate, On the Town, The Sound of Music and The Glenn Miller Story.
Josefina Gabrielle played the role of Roxie Hart at the Adelphi and Cambridge Theatres. She will now be making her debut as Velma Kelly. Her other theatre work includes Cats, Carousel, Fame, Kiss Me Kate, On the Town, The Sound of Music and The Glenn Miller Story.
Chicago returns to the West End following a successful UK and international tour, and after a 5½-year absence from London. It previously ran in London for 15 years at the Cambride and Garrick Theatres.
Chicago is currently booking from 26 March 2018 until 23 June 2018 at the Phoenix Theatre.
