Take a look at Tristram Kenton’s first look production photos from the London revival of Kander and Ebb’s award-winning musical Chicago.
Now in previews, Chicago stars Cuba Gooding Jr as Billy Flynn, Sarah Soetaert as Roxie Hart, Josefina Gabrielle as Velma Kelly, Ruthie Henshall as Mama Morton and Paul Rider as Amos Hart.
Chicago, which is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The Broadway revival of Chicago was choreographed by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse, directed by Walter Bobbie and produced by Barry and Fran Weissler.
Chicago originally ran in London for 15 years, making it the West End’s longest running revival. Chicago has won six Tony Awards, two Olivier awards and a Grammy. Chicago continues to run on Broadway, where it recently celebrated its 21st birthday, and around the world in multiple langues. It is the world’s longest running American musical.
Chicago opens on 11 April at the Phoenix Theatre London.
