The initial run will finish on 30 November at Stoke’s Regent Theatre, with more dates and venues to be added for 2025.

Chicago holds the title of the longest running American musical in Broadway and West End history and is still going strong.

While Drag Race’s Jinkx Monsoon made herstory, becoming the first drag artist to ever take on the role of Matron “Mama” Morton – and to rave reviews.

The show previously toured the UK in 2022, with the likes of Lee Mead playing Billy Flynn, Faye Brookes as Roxie Hart and Djalenga Scott as Velma Kelly.

The casting for the upcoming production is yet to be announced, but fans can expect more news in the coming months.

The musical is set in the decadent 1920s and follows Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her lover after he threatens to walk out on her.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, 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.

It’s score features some iconic numbers including “Cell Block Tango”, “All That Jazz”, “Razzle Dazzle” and “When You’re Good to Mama”.
