Raena White, who was seen in the national tour of The Lion King, makes her Broadway debut in the long-running, Tony-winning revival of Chicago September 10 at the Ambassador Theatre.

White, who also starred Off-Broadway in Sistas, steps into the role of Matron “Mama” Morton. She joins a cast that currently includes Michelle DeJean as Roxie Hart, Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, John O’Hurley as Billy Flynn, Evan Harrington as Amos Hart, and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

Israeli recording artist Shiri Maimon will star as Roxie Hart beginning September 21, and Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. will become Broadway's newest Billy Flynn starting October 6.


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

Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
