CHICAGO The Musical Is Leaving Audiences in Awe, At Montecasino!

He had it coming, He only had himself to blame, If you'd have been there, If you'd have heard it, I betcha you would, Have done the same!"

This 2019 version of a 1975 original Broadway musical has more impact than ever before. An Adulterous, Fun, Comical musical thats filled with sexy women and incredible choreography and the singing is just out of this world. Performances will blow your mind.... No chance of getting bored or loosing interest in this production! Velma Kelly and Roxy Hart are back, with a vengeance of course.... did they do it?

Say hello to CHICAGO THE MUSICAL - currently on at Monte Casino.

After hugely successful tours of New Zealand and China, the South African cast and crew have the show on home turf, and it's one not to miss.

The show is based on an American musical crime comedy- stage-musical that explores the themes of Celebrity status, scandal, adultery and corruption in Chicago during the Jazz Age.

The stage is incredible, with the Band right front and centre and the entire production plays around it. First hand experience of sultry music headed up by musical director Bryan Schimmel and his band. Can we all just agree, Jazz and those horns, are sultry and sexy and plays to the ambience of a corrupted Chicago.

And if you think the music is great, let's just talk about the Choreography! Hitting marks, on point, timing perfect and sexy moves and those barely there outfits... what more could you ask for.

CHICAGO the musical is headlined by some of South Africa's best talent. The leading trio is Samantha Peo as Velma Kelly, Carmen Pretorius as Roxie Hart and Craig Urbani as Billy Flynn.

Other stellar performances to look out for are from Ilse Klink who plays the role of Mama Morton. The conniving Cell matron, who looks out for her girls, as long as she gets something out of it, you know how it goes.... "When you're good to mama, mama's good to you."

And Grant Towers, who revives the role of Amos Hart, Roxie Hart's, sad, broken and ever-loyal husband. Without a doubt his performance of, "Mr Cellophane", was one of the standout performances of the show. the crowd was in hysterics and a deafening round of applause ensued.

Chicago is a filled with all the Razzle Dazzle, Glitz and Glamour you have grown to love from the movies and musicals, from show-stopping performances, out of this world, slick choreography and a live orchestra, they have it all.

This is a show you do NOT want to miss out on.
