Here's some fantastic news just hot off the presses. The NZ Herald print edition (it's not online at the moment) has an article that says Lucy will be in the stage production of Chicago by the Auckland Theatre Company.

Lucy will be starring as Velma Kelly (the Catherine Zeta-Jones character from the 2002 movie) in November from 1 - 24 November NZ




1920's Chicago. Cook County jail is home to a merry band of murderesses who have all killed their husbands or lovers. There's nothing money can't buy in this place. Inmates Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly do a deal with smooth-talking, manipulative lawyer Billy Flynn to keep them from Death Row, while he promises to make them stars.

One of the most famous musicals of all time, Chicago is a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery - all those things we hold near and dear to our heart. A dark parable of American justice, it is jurisprudence-as-showbusiness and trial-by-publicity.

With show-stopping numbers such as "All That Jazz", "Razzle Dazzle", "When You're Good to Momma" and "Class", Chicago is a sexy musical extravaganza and an unmissable tribute to the very heart and soul of theatre.
ATC's version of Chicago transforms the whole Q Theatre auditorium into the Cook County jailhouse.

"The longest-running American musical ever to play the West End, Chicago has garnered a stash of glitzy awards in many revivals worldwide. Michael Hurst's version of this razor-sharp, knockout show about bad girls behaving badly is guaranteed to have all the in-yer-face intimacy of his ATC tent-Cabaret in 2010." - Colin
