Chicago review: Come and see how the prettiest women ever charged with murder get free for an evening of fabulous entertainment.
Chicago review by Katey Thompson.
This is an evening full of music, dancing and singing. Chicago is based true events that happened in Chicago in the 1920’s and is based on the play written by Maurine Dallas Watkins. It is about two vaudeville acts who are being tried for murder, with lyrics and music by John Kander and Fred Ebb.
Roxie Hart is brilliantly performed by Hayley Tamaddon (of Emmerdale and Coronation Street fame) a night club singer who shoots her lover whilst declaring undying love for her husband Amos. Neil Ditt portrays this non-descript man with excellent pathos and humour, especially when he performs the classic Mister Cellophane. Velma Kelly, a double murderess is depicted brilliantly by Sophie Carmen-Jones. Whilst in prison Roxie steals Velma Kelly’s place »
