By Andrew Gans
Two-time Emmy Award nominee and celebrated TV personality Samantha Harris ("The Insider," "Dancing with the Stars") will make her Broadway debut this summer in the Tony Award-winning revival of Chicago.
Harris will also star as Roxie Hart in the Greenville, SC, engagement of the Chicago national tour, which runs Aug. 18-23 at the Peace Center.
Samantha Harris appeared in the 23-city North American tour of Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python, and also starred onstage in the original L.A. cast of Reefer Madness: The New "Hit" Musical.
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 plays the Ambassador Theatre, located at 219 West 49th Street.
