TICKETS go on sale next Friday for the multi award-winning touring Broadway production of Chicago The Musical coming to Eden Court on May 24-29 next year.

The sexy, sassy score includes the show-stopping songs Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango and All That Jazz.

Winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway and West End history.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.

Since it opened in New York in 1996, Chicago has played in 36 countries worldwide, and been performed in English, Dutch, German, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, French, Danish, Japanese and Korean.

Worldwide it has been seen by an estimated 33 million people, grossed over $1.7 billion has played over 32,500 performances.

Casting for the tour is to be announced soon.
