The show has been running for nearly seven-and-a-half years in the city, and during that time has often cast big stars to boost the box office. Sacha Distel, Denise Van Outen, David Hasselhoff and Alison Moyet have all had their names above the title. The staging’s original cast included Henry Goodman, Ute Lemper, Ruthie Henshall and Nigel Planer.

Brooke Shields has previously appeared in Cabaret, The Exonerated, Grease and last year Wonderful Town in New York. Her film career started when she was a child, and has included the controversial "Pretty Baby" and "The Blue Lagoon" and her own TV series, "Suddenly Susan."

The current cast will continue, aside from Josefina Gabrielle’s Roxie, after Shields starts in the role. Anna Montanaro will play Velma (although Charley Izabella King takes over May 7), Michael French will be Billy Flynn, and Robert Hands will play Amos.
