Chicago would mark the actor's Broadway debut.

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 currently features Charlotte d'Amboise as Roxie Hart, Luba Mason as Velma Kelly, Carol Woods as Mama Morton, P.J. Benjamin as Amos Hart and Christopher McDonald as Billy Flynn. Brooke Shields replaces d'Amboise as Roxie beginning Sept. 9. Chicago plays the Ambassador Theatre, located at 215 West 49th Street.
