2 for 1 ticket offer to see Raza Jaffrey star in the hit West End musical Chicago

Posted: 20.06.12

You probably recognise his sauve yet moody face and signature cheekbones from somewhere, but are not sure where?

 

Raza Jaffrey is one of those actors whose credentials are impressive enough to put him at the top of the A’list…but he doesn’t behave like a typical celebrity so you won’t see him papped at any trendy parties…probably because he’s too busy working!


The Liverpudlian actor recently starred as Dev Sundaram in US drama Smash, a fictional behind the scenes tale of a Broadway musical where he was spotted by Chicago Producer Barry Weissler who immediately offered him the coveted male lead in Chicago playing Billy Flynn. 


A tale of murder, greed, adultery and exploitation, Chicago is a classic Fosse style musical with glamour, chorus girls, feathers and some very slinky outfits.

 

The London production alone has so far used up over 14,000 pairs of tights and over 136,000 hairpins to produced the retro hairstyles. (You don’t come across facts like that every day!)


A movie of the same name starred Catherine Zeta Jones, Renee Zellweger and Richard Gere in the role of the lawyer Billy Flynn who likes to put a showbiz spin on female murders, turning them from lonely spinsters to high profile celebrities.


The role takes Raza back to his musical roots when he shot to fame starring along side Preeya Kalidas in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Bombay Dreams back in 2002. Raza’s CV also  boasts parts in UK prime time TV series Spooks and Mistresses, and appearances in Hollywood movies Harry Brown and Sex & The City 2.


Raza’s stars in the show at The Garrick Theatre until 14th July.  Asiana.Tv are offering a 2 for 1 offer on best-priced tickets on all shows until then. To purchase online, follow this link and choose your dates and tickets. You don’t require a code.
