Chicago: The Musical

The legendary director and choreographer Bob Fosse had the vision for Chicago in 1975 when he obtained the rights from the original book writer Maurine Watkins. He joined forces with the musical team of John Kander and Fred Ebb who had previously written Cabaret, to create the first version of the musical Chicago. It ran for 600 performances until 1979, until it was revived on Broadway in 1996, then a year later in London's West End. The world-famous tale of love, murder and corruption holds the record for the second longest-running show ever to run on Broadway, and will be performed at Shanghai's AIA Grand Theatre between June 20 and 23. Performance is in English with Chinese subtitles. Please note: children under 13 years old are not allowed to enter this show.

The most popular and enduring musical of the 20th century, the Phantom of the Opera, comes to China, performed in English by a Western cast. The musical was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who wrote a string of hits including Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats and Starlight Express. Phantom is based on a Gaston Leroux novel of 1911 about a beautiful soprano who becomes the obsession of a disfigured musical genius. It has been playing in London ever since it first opened in 1986, and on Broadway since 1988, and has been seen by millions of people in 145 countries. The original version is on a China tour and set to perform in Shanghai from August 27 until October 13.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit based on the hilarious movie starring Jack Black is set to rock out at New Bund 31 Theatre. This irresistible new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping mind-blowing rock band. With a new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Julian Fellowes and an incredible cast of kids shredding guitars, pounding drums and rocking out live, School of Rock will test your head, and your mind, and your brain too. A treat for rockers of all ages.

From May 9 until Jun 2
