Win tick­ets to Chicago the Mu­si­cal

Waikato News - - FRONT PAGE -

A night­club singer, a dou­ble-mur­der­ess, a smooth-talk­ing lawyer and a cell block of sin . . . so the story un­folds in the award­win­ning Broad­way and West End mu­si­cal

Chicago, and the good news is you can be in to win one of two dou­ble passes to the Sun­day Mati­nee on Septem­ber 2

Set in the Pro­hi­bi­tion-era 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a house­wife and night­club dancer with am­bi­tions of Vaudeville star­dom, who ma­li­ciously mur­ders her on-the-side lover af­ter he threat­ens to walk out on her.

Des­per­ate to avoid con­vic­tion, she du­pes the pub­lic, the me­dia and her ri­val cell­mate, Velma Kelly, by hir­ing Chicago’s slick­est crim­i­nal lawyer to trans­form her ma­li­cious crime into a bar­rage of sen­sa­tional head­lines, the likes of which might just as eas­ily be ripped from to­day’s tabloids.

Win­ner of six Tonys, two Oliviers, one Grammy, two Baf­tas and six Academy Awards, plus thou­sands of stand­ing ova­tions, Chicago is the long­est-run­ning mu­si­cal re­vival in Broad­way his­tory and truly is “The sharpest, slick­est show on the block — (The Times, UK).

Chicago has ev­ery­thing that makes Broad­way and the West End great — a universal tale of fame, for­tune and all that jazz; one show-stop­ping song af­ter an­other, in­clud­ing Raz­zle Daz­zle, Cell Block Tango and All That Jazz; the sex­i­est, most sen­sa­tional danc­ing; and a sharply so­phis­ti­cated set which in­cor­po­rates the 11-piece orches­tra.

It’s no sur­prise that this dev­il­ishly de­li­cious mu­si­cal has brought cheer­ing au­di­ences to their feet around the globe, hav­ing played to 31 mil­lion peo­ple world­wide!

Chicago is a stun­ning spec­ta­cle full of so­cial satire, in­trigue, love, be­trayal, ri­valry and friend­ship, a pageant of mu­sic and dance that adroitly shifts be­tween re­al­ity and fan­tasy, as Roxie Hart’s world moves from prison to the court­room to the stage.
