Cellblock Tango musical show Chicago, which famously became a 2002 movie featuring Renee Zellweger, has been entertaining London audiences for close to15 years.

But it has emerged that the show will now be seeing its last performance in the West End come September, having been playing on the Garrick stage.

After the music instruments of the orchestra have played the last bars of the musical's melodies to a no doubt appreciative crowd, they will be being put to use to create other music.

When Chicago took to the cinema screen, it featured John C Reilly in the role of Amos Hart, husband to the story's protagonist, Roxie - the part taken by Zellweger.

Richard Gere (Runaway Bride) was the lawyer Billy Flynn and Catherine Zeta-Jones the imprisoned Velma Kelly.

Dominic West, who would later become known for US drama series The Wire, had the small part of Fred Casley.

A touring production of Chicago, meanwhile, is set to visit the likes of Aberdeen and Nottingham in the coming weeks.
