From June 22-Aug. 8 Davis will play merry murderess Roxie Hart in the Tony-winning revival of the Kander and Ebb musical. Before she landed her television gig on The Learning Channel, Davis played the role of Mona in the Las Vegas production of Chicago, where she also understudied Chita Rivera's Roxie. The singer-actress-dancer also played Annie in the Broadway company.
"Trading Spaces" is now in its fourth season on The Learning Channel. The series — hosted by Davis — invites neighbors to redo one room in each of their homes. Davis' theatrical credits include Beauty and the Beast, A Chorus Line, Company, Pippin and Hello, Dolly! The actress resides in Manhattan with her husband, Patrick Page, and their Maltese, Sophie.
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.
On Broadway, Chicago plays the Ambassador Theatre, 219 W. 49th Street.
