Fox will step into the role of Roxie Hart for 16 performances only, Nov. 2-15.

Following her stint on Broadway, Fox will reprise her role in the English-language production of Chicago in Japan at the Theater Orb in Tokyo, Dec. 4-23 and at the Umeda Art Theater in Osaka, Dec. 26-27.

Raised in Santa Fe, NM, Charlotte Kate Fox appeared in regional stage productions and smaller independent films before she landed the role of Ellie on the NHK Japanese morning drama “Massan.”

Broadway's Chicago currently stars Dylis Croman as Roxie Hart (Rumer Willis starts Sept. 14), Carly Hughes (through Sept. 4) as Velma Kelly, Ivan Hernandez as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron “Mama” Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

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 November 1996 where it remained through February 1997. The musical transferred to the Shubert Theatre on Feb. 11, 1997, and played at 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 W. 49th Street.
