Razzle and dazzle on the red carpet as Chicago opens at Dublin’s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

Stars took to the red carpet at Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre for the opening night of CHICAGO, the award winning smash hit musical,

Leading the cast was ‘Three Degrees’ soul singing legend Sheila Ferguson who stars as ‘Mama Morton’ with singing sensation Russell Watson as Billy Flynn, TV star Faye Brooks (Coronation Street) as Roxie Hart and West End star Djalenga Scott as Velma Kelly.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
