Emma Barton will be new Roxie in Chicago

Emma Louise Barton will play Roxie Hart in Chicago The Musical  from 26 April 2010 at the Cambridge Theatre.

Emma Louise Barton was born 1977 in Portsmouth, is an English actress. She played Honey Mitchell in EastEnders from November 2005 to September 2008.

‘Murder, Greed, Corruption, Exploitation, Adultery, Treachery…all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts’

… so begins Chicago, one of the most phenomenal musicals of our times. Creators John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse never back off from their bold, yet sinister, promise. Eleven years on Chicago still remains ‘the hottest show in town’.

The kiss-and-tell story of chorus girl Roxie who kills her lover; Velma Kelly, the glamorous double-murderer and Billy Flynn, the slick and manipulative lawyer keeping them from death row while promising to make them stars, has all the topicality of our celebrity-seeking times. It also provides some of the most sensational roles in all musical theatre.

Ruthie Henshall will play Roxie Hart until the 17th April.

Be razzled and dazzled by Chicago: a true Broadway and West End classic.
