In other news, Latino star Marco Zunino has extended his limited engagement as Billy Flynn through  March 4, and Mexican stage and screen sensation Bianca Marroquin has extended her limited run as Roxie Hart through April 5.

The Broadway production also currently stars Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart and Carol Woods as Matron "Mama" Morton.

As previously announced, supermodel Christie Brinkley returns to the role of Roxie Hart April 6 for a three-week limited engagement before making her Broadway national tour debut with Chicago this summer.

The revival of Chicago began life as one of the three annual Encores! presentations offered by City Center. The musical opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in Nov. 1996 where it remained through Feb. 1997. The musical transferred to the Shubert Theatre on Feb. 11, 1997, and played that house through Jan. 26, 2003. The revival reopened at the Ambassador Theatre, its current home, on Jan. 29, 2003.

Chicago won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical in 1997 as well as awards for actors Bebe Neuwirth and James Naughton, director Walter Bobbie, lighting designer Ken Billington and choreographer Ann Reinking. The original production was directed and choreographed by the late Bob Fosse.

The Ambassador Theatre is located at 219 West 49th Street.
