The classic musical comedy from the same writers as Cabaret and New York, New York is coming to Shanghai. Here's your chance to hear world-famous numbers like "All That Jazz" and "Razzle Dazzle" performed in the most authentic retelling this city has seen. First debuting in 1975, Chicago is the kiss-n-tell tale of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who kills her lover and ends up in the slammer; Billy Flynn, a lawyer who turns her into a celebrity; and Velma Kelly, a jailbird with a knack for dance, an ear for headlines, and an eye for talent. It's vaudeville, it's satire, it's about fame, celebrity trials, corruption, cheque-book journalism and the American legal system. Shanghai's going to see the whole 2-hour shebang; 23 dancers and singers, an 11-piece jazz orchestra, the same sets, costumes, lighting, choreography... all that jazz! West End and Broadway coming straight to our doorstep.
