Shayne succeeds Christie Brinkley, who played her final performance April 27. Brinkley will now make her Broadway national tour debut with Chicago in San Diego (May 8-13), Los Angeles (May 15-27) and Durham, NC (July 31-Aug. 5).
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 that house through Jan. 26, 2003. The revival reopened at the Ambassador Theatre, its current home, on Jan. 29, 2003. Read more about the revival in the Playbill Vault.
The Ambassador Theatre is located at 219 West 49th Street.
