Vicki Lewis, Robert Urich and Nana Visitor are the new trio of singing sinners in the national tour of Chicago, opening Nov. 16 at the Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit.
Lewis, Urich and Visitor are Velma, Billy and Roxie, respectively, and represent new life for the tour, which earlier this fall went on a brief hiatus. Urich has been performing in the company for several weeks, but the trio's first time together will be the Detroit stand.
Lewis is known for roles in Broadway's Damn Yankees and on TV's "News Radio." Urich, not known as a musical comedy performer, is popular as the new captain on the syndicated "Love Boat" series, plus his TV role as "Spenser: For Hire." Visitor starred in the series, "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine."
Performances continue at the Masonic Temple, operated by the Nederlander Organization, to Nov. 28. Call (313) 832-2232 for information.
The company then treks south for a five week engagement begins Nov. 30 at the National Theatre in Washington, DC.
