Ruffelle & Backstreet Richardson Join Chicago???

By • West End
The West End invasion of former boyband stars looks likely to continue unabated. Following in the recent footsteps of Boyzone's Stephen Gately, S Club's Jon Lee and Steps' Lee Latchford-Evans comes former Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson. According to the Daily Mail, he - along with Les Miserables old hand Frances Ruffelle - will soon be joining the cast of Chicago. From September, Richardson and Ruffelle are due to play, respectively, Billy Flynn and Roxie to Ruthie Henshall's Velma. A spokesman for the show's producers told Whatsonstage.com that that casting has still not been confirmed. Speaking of Chicago, however, one thing has been confirmed. The DVD and video of the hit film based on the Kander and Ebb musical will be officially launched Monday night (21 July 2003) at London's G.A.Y. Club, where members of the stage company will perform the number "Roxie", with Amy Field playing the eponymous murderess.
