Sinitta is an international recording artist having released 15 hit pop records including So Macho, Toyboy and Cross My Broken Heart.

She has also apperared in West End productions of Cats, Little Shop of Horrors, Hair and Smokey Joe's Cafe.

Sinitta has als remaned in the spotlight becoming a mentor to young emerging talent as Simon Cowell's right-hand woman on the X-Factor.

Davina De Campo is a seasoned British drag queen and singer who was recently crowned runner-up on the first series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

Set amid the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cell-mate, 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.

Since it opened in New York in 1996, Chicago has played in 36 countries worldwide and has been seen by an estimated 33 million people and is the longest running American musical in Broadway and West End history.
