Chicago

An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Production

Oldham Coliseum Theatre brings this hit musical back to its original vaudevillian roots in the first new production since 1997. Get up close and personal to the murder, mayhem and music. And what music - 'All That Jazz', 'Roxie', and 'Razzle Dazzle' are among the fantastic musical numbers on stage.

Glamorous Roxie Hart is hungry for fame and she will ruthlessly target anyone who will help her up the ladder. Seductive Velma is already a shooting star - and she's determined to keep it that way. They're banged up on Death Row in Cook County Jail. For murder. Never slow to miss an opportunity, Roxie and Velma battle for lawyer Billy Flynn's attention. He wants to exploit the media furore and grab the attention of story hungry journalists. And make a fast buck. Velma and Roxie soon learn that jail is full of cold blooded killers - just as hungry as they are for their own five minutes of notoriety.

Don't miss this hot jazz classic set in the 'Windy City' - Chicago

Reviews:

"There’s no doubting that the Coliseum has resurrected [Chicago] in a production that will be hard to equal" Manchester Theatre Awards

"The jokes are quickly and carefully nuanced, the big set pieces handled strongly and throughout, the actor-musicians give the show back to the Twenties with down-and-dirty jazz and rag numbers" Oldham Chronicle

"Small-scale Chicago is great big success" - Manchester Evening News
