The Tony Award-winning, record-breaking revival of Chicago welcomes the return of two-time Tony nominee Charlotte d'Amboise beginning June 6 at the Ambassador Theatre.

D'Amboise again steps into the role of Roxie Hart. The triple-threat holds the record for having played Roxie more than any other actress in the history of the production—more than 2,500 performances on Broadway and the road combined to date.

For her portrayal of Roxie in the first national tour of Chicago, d'Amboise earned the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award, L.A. Ovation Award and a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Award. She received Tony Award nominations for her performances in Jerome Robbins' Broadway and the revival of A Chorus Line. She has also appeared on Broadway in Pippin (Astaire Award), Sweet Charity, Contact, Company, Damn Yankees, Carrie, Song & Dance and Cats.

D'Amboise takes over for Chicago veteran Dylis Croman, who played her final performance June 5. The cast also features Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Jane the Virgin star Jaime Camil as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

With a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse, Chicago is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
