A nightclub singer, a double-murderess, a smooth-talking lawyer and a cell block of sin surrounded by the razzle dazzle of the world’s sexiest musical returns in 2019! YOU’VE GOT IT COMIN’ as the story of the award-winning Broadway and West End musical CHICAGO unfolds to show-stopping songs including ‘All that Jazz’, ‘Cell Block Tango’ and ‘Mister Cellophane’.
The multi-talented all-South African touring cast, band and crew begin rehearsals in Johannesburg this month ahead of an international tour to New Zealand and China. The South African leg of the tour in association with BBC First brings CHICAGO back to Artscape, Cape Town from 15 March until 14 April 2019, thereafter heading to Montecasino’s Teatro in Johannesburg from 20 April to 26 May 2019. Booking is open at Computicket.
From the opening line to curtain close – there’s nothing like CHICAGO on stage. Originally staged in Cape Town and Johannesburg in 2005 and again, owing to popular demand, in 2008 at Montecasino’s Teatro and Artscape, this show has been enjoyed by more than 210,000 theatre-goers. Reviewers and critics alike raved about the show. “This Musical is Hot with a capital H. It’s so sexy that it sets temperatures soaring – even on a chilly night!” said The Citizen while The Tonight called the show “A class act all the way …. CHICAGO is impeccable, irresistible, unmissable” and Artslink simply summed up the show “A hot, hot ticket.”
CHICAGO continues to be one of the most successful international musical hits of all time. CHICAGO’s international appeal stems from its enticing tale of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery-characteristics the entire world is drawn to. “I know a WHOOPEE spot …..” Book now for CHICAGO 2019 by calling Computicket on 083 915 8000 or book on line at www.computicket.com Computicket is the official ticketing partner for the Chicago ‘The Musical’, and tickets should not be purchased from any other supplier/outlets.
