- The long-running musical recasts again
CHICAGO enters its sixth year with a starry recast. Rolf Saxon and Zee Asha take over from television stars Michael Greco and Gaby Roslin from 24 March 2003, and comedian Norman Pace returns to perform in the award winning musical for the first time since 1999.
Saxon builds on his stage time in recent West End shows The Graduate, Dinner with Friends and The Seven Year Itch. Asha joins Chicago straight from the Boy George musical Taboo, whilst Linzi Hateley and Tiffany Graves continue their current roles as murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly.
Chicago is a Kander and Ebb musical choreographed in the style of Bob Fosse. The tale of love and deception amongst American chorus lines has a strong plot featuring murder and seduction in a story that charts a feisty dancer's determination to get herself acquitted. The show is currently booking at the Adelphi until September 27.
