24 actors, singers and dancers take part in the musical Chicago, which has opened at the Teatro Apolo in Madrid, an exciting story about greed, murder and show business, full of hits such as All That Jazz and Razzle Dazzle.
The musical has the makings of the best musicals: a universal story of fame and fortune, a legendary score and choreography that is recognised as some of the best in history. Set amidst the flamboyant decadence of the 1920s, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer, who viciously murders her lover when he threatens to leave her. Desperate to avoid conviction, Roxie deceives the public, the media and her cellmate and rival, Velma Kelly, and hires the most skilled lawyer in the city of Chicago, Billy Flynn. This famous lawyer will turn his crime into a smokescreen of sensationalist headlines in the style of those that can be read in today’s tabloid scandal magazines. Tickets are on sale now at this link.
