Chicago London

Chicago the musical is about real crimes. The story of a show business starlet, written by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, this is a spectacular play of the glamorous treachery in the prohibition era. The criminal in this play is into theatre and lives and commits a crime as if it is not reality, but theatre. The writers of this play worked diligently to write this story. John Kander and Fred Ebb along with Bob Fosse have developed it, presented it and the play has taken the world by storm.

The play is being played out at the Cambridge theatre London which seats 1,275 people. Built originally in 1930 the lovely architecture maintains much of its romantic grandeur of a previous decade. The grandiose elements are there designed by Wimperis, Simpson and Guthrie. The actual building was constructed by Gee Walker Slater.

Many have a love for the Theatre; it was the first venue in the field of entertainment. Plays were held on street corners and in open fairs, Theatre has always been and the play Chicago is carrying on the legacy of the great plays offered around the globe by artist committed to the pursuit of perfection. Chicago, the longest running play in the history of the West End, is a play not to be missed. To see it with the true emotion of the theatre is like no other venue. To sense the presence of a world that for a moment became intoxicated with its success.

The Cambridge Theatre stands out in the West End district flanked by the large street column. The showplace is located on Earlham Street, Seven Dials, London, WC2. The large banner shouts Chicago. The story of a time of Gangland warfare, bold behavior and I can do anything attitudes. This is a wonderful play depicting a spectacular era, based on real life characters living in a time of curious justice.

The Cambridge has gone through changes over the years but when entering the theatre one cannot help but feel the legacy of a world that once was. Tickets are easily purchased online or at the theatre. Prepare to have a wonderful evening where you will be entertained beyond your imagination. The choreography in Chicago goes beyond fantastic and the music all definitely wonderful. The style, the care placed in the detail of designing the building, all for the vision of Thearte.
