As official hotel partner of Chicago The Musical, the team at The Waldorf Hilton share a Chicago The Musical Themed guide to London.
How do you find the Razzle Dazzle in London?
Chicago The Musical is an award-winning show with six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy to its name. Returning to London after 6 years and now starring Academy Award-Winner Cuba Gooding Jnr in his West End stage debut, the sassiest and sophisticated Broadway musical in history is celebrating 21 years of standing ovations in style.
Written by John Kander and Fred Ebb (who also wrote the musicals Cabaret, Kiss of The Spider Woman and the film New York New York), Chicago is a searing story of fame, crime, celebrity and glamour as relevant today as in the 1920s when it’s set. Home to some of the best songs in any musical including All That Jazz, Razze Dazzle and The Cell Block Tango and has two of the feistiest women to ever feature on stage … Ladies and Gentleman Miss Roxie Heart and Miss Velma Kelly.
