In a previous statement producer Barry Weissler said, "We're very excited to welcome Charlotte back to the show this November. Speaking on behalf of the entire Chicago family, we always find that her energizing presence and unparalleled talent make her one of the best Roxies we've ever had. She is most definitely an audience favorite."

The Chicago company also currently features Brenda Braxton as Velma Kelly, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, Carol Woods as Matron "Mama" Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

In addition to Chicago, Charlotte d'Amboise has starred on Broadway in A Chorus Line, Contact, Cats, Song and Dance, Carrie, Jerome Robbins' Broadway, Damn Yankees, Company and Sweet Charity.
