The hit Broadway musical visits Dublin from 21 August - 1 September and we’re offering our readers a chance to win two tickets to see it next Wednesday (August 22).
Especially for its Dublin run, the role of Billy Flynn will be played by Duncan James of pop band Blue, who has also previously appeared on ITV’s ‘Dancing on Ice’. Other stars taking to the stage at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre include Ali Bastian (Hollyoaks/The Bill) as Roxie Hart, Tupele Dorgu (Coronation Street) as Velma Kelly, and Bernie Nolan (The Nolans/The Bill/Brookside) as Mama Morton.
Since it’s debut in 1975, the stage production of ‘Chicago’ has been a runaway success, accumulating a string of Tony and Laurence Olivier Awards. The 2002 Hollywood adaptation, starring Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere, followed the same trend, picking up six Academy Awards and three Golden Globes.
