A new UK tour of the ever-popular Chicago music has been announced, with tickets already on sale for shows this winter.

Opening at the Milton Keynes Theatre on 12 October, Chicago will visit a number of locations across England before ending its run at the end of November. It’s due to hit Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle, Dartford, Stoke and Southampton.

Set in the roaring jazz era of the 1920s, Chicago tells the story of housewife and aspiring star Roxie Hart, who ends up in prison after murdering her lover. It features iconic songs ‘All That Jazz’, ‘Cell Block Tango’ and ‘Razzle Dazzle’.

Chicago was originally created by John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse, opening on Broadway in 1975. The musical was made into a movie in 2002, starring the fabulous Renée Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Casting for the UK tour hasn’t yet been announced, though we’re holding out hope for Jinkx Monsoon as Mama, after the Drag Race star stunned audiences on Broadway with the part last year.
