DENISE VAN OUTEN REVIVES ROLE IN APRIL

Television star Denise Van Outen will revive her role as 'Roxie Hart' in Chicago for five weeks at the Adelphi Theatre from 29th April 02 to 1st June 02, following a five-week in the New York production at Broadway's Shubert Theatre from 18th Mar to 21st April.

She called her Broadway debut at the Shubert Theatre "an ambition come true...I've always wanted to be a Broadway babe," said the 27-year-old. "To come from the Big Breakfast to Broadway is truly an ambition come true. I never thought this would happen and only imagined it in my wildest dreams. I do hope the Americans are going to like me.".

She made a succesful debut in "Chicago" last April 2001 for 16 weeks. Apart from her prolific television presenting work and appearances in television dramas, her London theatre work includes "Les Miserables" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at the RSC. One of the stars of the film "Love, Honour and Obey", her recordings include the Children in Need single "Especially For You", (which she sang with Johnny Vaughan, reaching Number 3 in the charts) and the album "Abba Mania", on which Denise sang "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!".

"CHICAGO", which is based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. Scenic design is by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting by Ken Billington and sound by Rick Clarke. Musical supervision is by Rob Fisher and musical direction by Gareth Valentine. It is choreographed by Ann Reinking in the style of Bob Fosse and directed by Walter Bobbie.

The West End production of "CHICAGO" is staged by the entire original Broadway creative team.

"CHICAGO" opened in London on 18 November 1997 to rave reviews and immediately became a sell-out hit. It won the 1998 Laurence Olivier Award for 'Outstanding Musical Production' as well as the 1998 Critics Circle Drama Award for 'Best Musical'.
