Pop, Six, Squish, Uh Uh! Chicago The Musical Is Coming To Brisbane
He had it comin'By Stamatina Notaras | 31st August 2023
A dash of razzle, a pinch of dazzle, all that jazz and what do you get? Chicago The Musical, baby! With an abundance of talent and a spray of familiar musical theatre faces, Chicago the Musical is sashaying our way, hitting the stage of QPAC in January 2024.
If the premise of this musical-turned-star-studded-film starring ultimate leading lady Catherine Zeta-Jones has slipped your mind, let us jog your memory. Chicago The Musical takes us back to the 70s and follows nightclub dancer and housewife Roxie Hart across the trials and tribulations that unravel following her crime of passion, and pleas of innocence.
The musical-theatre moguls showing face and breathing life into this cult classic include Anthony Warlow as slick-crime lawyer Billy Flynn, Zoë Ventoura as the glamourous Velma Kelly, Lucy Maunder as irreverent Roxie Hart, Peter Rowsthorn as Amos Hart, and Asabi Goodman as sassy and tough Matron ‘Mama’ Morton.
Not only has this musical masterpiece graced the likes of London’s West End stage, but it’s been honoured with 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, and a Grammy – not too shabby! Both sexy and seductive, don’t be surprised when you start singing along to ‘All That Jazz’, ‘Mister Cellophane’, ‘Razzle Dazzle’, and the infamous ‘Cell Block Tango’.
Taking over the Lyric Theatre from 2 January 2024, tickets are out now. Book a date with the murderesses of Cook County Jail and purchase yourself a seat here!
