Mazz Murray to join Martin Kemp in Chicago in the West End
Murray will play Mama Morton in the musical, taking over from Ruthie Henshall who played the prison matron when the show opened. Her previous credits include We Will Rock You, when she took over from Sharon D Clarke as Killer Queen and played the role for nine years, and the West End production of Mama Mia.
Kemp replaces Cuba Gooding Jnr, who made his London theatre debut as smooth lawyer Billy Flynn upon the production’s opening.
They will join the remaining cast members of Chicago from 2nd July: Sarah Soetaert, Josefina Gabrielle and Paul Rider as Roxie Hart, Velma Kelly and Amos Hart.
Chicago tickets are available now.
