Those interested in catching the Nov. 29 performance at the Ambassador Theatre should head to the theatre's box office, 219 West 49th Street, between the hours of 10 AM and 8 PM. The offer will only be available at the box office.

The Thursday performance will also mark the debuts of Aida Turturro ("The Sopranos") as Matron Mama Morton, Vincent Pastore ("The Sopranos") as Amos Hart and Maxwell Caulfield ("Dynasty") as Billy Flynn. (The three actors had been scheduled to begin their Chicago run Nov. 19, but the strike prevented that occurrence.)

The Chicago company also features Michelle DeJean as Roxie Hart and Tony nominee Brenda Braxton as Velma Kelly.

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.

Chicago plays the Ambassador Theatre, located at 215 West 49th Street.
