Jason Donovan is heading to his hometown Melbourne to star in the next Australian production of Chicago.

Jason will play Billy Flynn, the defence attorney who can win any trial and usually represents women who have murdered their lovers.

“I am very excited about coming home to Melbourne this December to play Billy Flynn in a brand new production of CHICAGO. It’s a role I’ve always wanted to play since watching my father do such a great job with it back in the early 80s. Quite simply, I’m a massive fan. The music, the story, the choreography, the energy of the piece…just awesome. Possibly one of the greatest musicals of all time. Bring on the Razzle Dazzle at Arts Centre Melbourne this summer!”, said Jason Donovan.

“We are so privileged to have Jason Donovan join the cast in his hometown of Melbourne to be part of the legendary Broadway institution that is CHICAGO. Jason has truly shown he is a force on stage with his internationally successful music, TV, acting and stage career and we are so thrilled we get to bring him home to star in his very first musical on an Australian stage. He will join a stellar Australian cast who are all sure to bring All That Jazz and more to Melbourne’s Summer Musical”, said the producers.

Jason will star with Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Alinta Chidzey and Casey Donovan as prison warden Matron ‘Mama’ Morton.

State Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne from December 14
