Tickets available for Chicago in Sydney

Chicago dancers stage theatre

Due to an unprecedented demand, CHICAGO, the musical described by The Times (UK) as “The sharpest, slickest show on the block”, has announced additional performances. Fans will be delighted to hear that tickets for shows up until 21 July are now on pre-sale, with general public sales commencing on Friday, 22 March. This comes as a result of the show’s immense success and stellar reviews in Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane, where it sold out and garnered five-star accolades from critics and audiences alike. The spectacular production is set to dazzle Sydney at the Capitol Theatre starting from 9 June.

Australia’s distinguished theatre producer, John Frost for Crossroads Live, has curated a remarkable cast for this season of CHICAGO. The lineup includes Anthony Warlow, who brings to life the suave lawyer Billy Flynn, with Zoë Ventoura as the formidable Velma Kelly and Lucy Maunder as the ambitious Roxie Hart. The cast also features the comedic genius Peter Rowsthorn as Amos and the talented Asabi Goodman as the prison warden Matron ‘Mama’ Morton, alongside a vibrant ensemble that accelerates the show’s energy and style.

Set in the roaring 1920s, CHICAGO offers a tantalizing tale of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who turns a crime of passion into a frenzy of media sensationalism with the help of Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer, Billy Flynn. The musical not only entertains but mirrors the scandal and the intrigue of the jazz age with its spectacular choreography, unforgettable songs, and gripping storyline.

The 1996 Broadway revival of the show, choreographed by Ann Reinking in the iconic style of Bob Fosse and directed by Walter Bobbie, has received worldwide acclaim for its artistic vision and execution. With a creative team including set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting by Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer, CHICAGO remains a Broadway jewel, celebrated for its raw depiction of ambition and scandal.

CHICAGO stands as a testament to the allure of musical theatre, making it an absolute must-see. Get your tickets fast and prepare to be mesmerized by the razzle-dazzle of this New York institution – a masterpiece of murder, greed, corruption, and all that jazz. It’s a crime to miss it!
