Mexican musical theatre and television actress Bianca Marroquin returns to the Tony Award-winning revival of Chicago July 8. 

Marroquin steps back into the heels of merry murderess Roxie Hart. Lindsay Roginski, who made her Broadway debut June 30 as Roxie, performed the role while Marroquin was on vacation. 

Chicago also stars Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Olivier Award nominee Brent Barrett as Billy Flynn, Paul C. Vogt as Amos Hart and Carol Woods as Matron "Mama" Morton.

With a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording. The revival, which now holds the record as the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, is produced by Barry and Fran Weissler.



Directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, Chicago features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer.
