Global ‘Chicago’ performers star in charity video for Make A Difference Trust
Stars including Bonnie Langford and David Hasselhoff feature in the video.
Over 150 performers and musicians that have starred in global productions of Chicago have come together for a virtual performance of “All That Jazz”. Company members from the West End production feature in the video, raising money for the Make A Difference Trust.
The project brings together performers from the West End, as well as Broadway and international tour productions, timed to celebrate the 24th anniversary of Chicago on Broadway. Watch out for cameos from Sally Ann Triplett, Debbie Kurup, Bonnie Langford and David Hasselhoff.
Chicago first opened in the West End at the Cambridge Theatre in April 1979. Although the musical was nominated for Best Musical, the production only ran for around 600 performances. The musical’s revival saw greater success, running for 15 years at the Adelphi and Cambridge respectively. To celebrate the musical’s 21st anniversary in London, Chicago opened at the Phoenix Theatre, starring Cuba Gooding Jnr. and Ruthie Henshall.
During lockdown, the Make A Difference Trust had raised funds for those requiring emergency relief in the theatre community.
