The musical opens in the West End next month

Photos have been released showing Cuba Gooding Jr, Sarah Soetaert, Josefina Gabrielle, Ruthie Hensall and Paul Rider in rehearsals for the upcoming production of Chicago in the West End.

The show returns to London following a five and a half year absence. The musical originally ran in London for 15 years, opening at the Adelphi Theatre in 1997.

Kander and Ebb's musical won six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and a Grammy. It tells the story of a young woman, Roxie, who is incarcerated and put on trial for murdering a man in her bedroom.

It was recently announced that the show would be extending its run through to 6 October, with casting for the extension to be announced.

Chicago runs from 11 April to 6 October, with previews from 26 March.
