Chicago The Musical

By the brilliant songwriting team of Kander and Ebb. 


Chicago  is an American musical with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and based on the book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. The stage is set in Jazz-age of the swinging Chicago. The musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the “celebrity criminal”.

The West End revival of Chicago became the longest-running American musical in West End history.

The Thespis team are pleased to announce for the 2019 season that you will soon be able to hire this all new costume set for this fabulous show set in the roaring twenties.



In roaring twenties Chicago, Chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse. Note that high school and youth organisations may not produce the standard version of CHICAGO, and must apply for  CHICAGO: HIGH SCHOOL EDITION.
