    SUZANNE SHAW RETURNS TO THE WEST END

    SUZANNE SHAW RETURNS TO THE WEST END STAGE TO STAR AS ‘ROXIE HART’ IN THE SMASH HIT WEST END MUSICAL Chicago AT THE CAMBRIDGE THEATRE ON MONDAY 2 JUNE FOR SIX WEEKS ONLY

    Suzanne Shaw, who has just won the ITV television series “Dancing on Ice”, will return to the West End stage to star as ‘Roxie Hart’ in the smash hit West End musical Chicago at the Cambridge Theatre on Monday 2 June for six weeks only (finishing on 12 July). Her other television credits include “The Bill”, “City Central” and “Holby City”. A member of Hear’Say (the original winners of television’s “Popstars”), Suzanne has had several hit singles.

    Chicago currently stars Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as ‘Roxie Hart’, Rachel McDowall as ‘Velma Kelly’, Terence Maynard as ‘Billy Flynn’, Paul Rider as ‘Amos Hart’ and Claudia Shear as ‘Mama Morton’.

    The London production of Chicago has just celebrated its tenth anniversary with a Charity Gala Performance, which took place on Wednesday 5 December. The smash hit West End musical Chicago transferred from the Adelphi Theatre to the Cambridge Theatre in April 2006. The Cambridge Theatre was the London home of Chicago, when the first production of the show opened there on 10 April 1979, running for 603 performances. Chicago became the longest running production ever to play at the Adelphi Theatre on 17 October 2005, replacing the previous record holder “Me and My Girl”, which had run for 3,303 performances.

    Chicago opened at the Adelphi Theatre on 18 November 1997 to rave reviews and immediately became a sell-out hit. Chicago won the 1998 Laurence Olivier Award for 'Outstanding Musical Production' as well as the 1998 Critics Circle Drama Award for 'Best Musical'. Currently playing in New York, with forthcoming productions planned in Japan, Australia and South Africa, Korea, Denmark and a US National Tour. Chicago is produced in London by the Broadway producers Barry and Fran Weissler.

    Chicago , which is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Scenic design is by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting by Ken Billington and sound by Rick Clarke. Musical supervision is by Rob Fisher and musical direction by Ian Townsend. Chicago is choreographed by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse and directed by Walter Bobbie. The West End production of Chicago is staged by the entire original Broadway creative team.
