Preview: Chicago @ Marina Bay Sands
Chicago is one of the sexiest, most exciting musicals to come off Broadway, and this 2017, finally returns to our shores!
Set in the roaring 20s, Chicago is based on real life events and follows struggling nightclub singer Roxie Hart’s meteoric rise to fame after she shoots her lover. Befriending cunning double-murderess Velma Kelly in the cell, the femme fatales enlist the help of smooth talking lawyer Billy Flynn to escape the clutches of prison and keep the fame ball rolling.
Taking on distinct noir influences, Chicago certainly isn’t your usual bundle of joy we’ve come to expect from musicals. Its protagonists are flawed, ruthless, and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Featuring hits such as Cell Block Tango and All That Jazz, this is one show that’ll have you on the edge of your seat.
With yet another internationally acclaimed musical brought to our shores, BASE entertainment has this year in spades, and we’re looking forward to watching the claws come unfurled and the drama rise to a fever pitch. It’s practically criminal to miss it!
