The musical, which went on to be made into an Oscar-winning film starring Catherine Zeta Jones, will see the curtain come down on September 1. Guest roles have gone to celebrities such as Brooke Shields, Christie Brinkley and David Hasselhoff over the years.

Barry Weissler, who has produced the show along with his wife Fran in New York and London, said: "Bringing Chicago to the West End was a pivotal moment in Fran's and my career.

"Running 15 years has been a dream come true. We may be taking our parting shots for now, but the Razzle Dazzle will never fade."
