St. Louis' The Muny Theatre has announced its cast for its summer production of Chicago which will once again be led by Sarah Bowden (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Roxie Hart and J. Harrison Ghee (Kinky Boots) as Velma Kelly.

Lane (Kiss Me, Kate) as Billy Flynn, Adam Heller (Titanic) as Amos Hart, and Ali Ewoldt (The Phantom of the Opera) as Mary Sunshine.

The Muny's Chicago played an abbreviated run and closed early last season, but still met success at the St. Louis Theater Circle Awards on March 28 where it won the Best Musical Award and six others, including direction, choreography, and music direction. The production features direction and choreography by Denis Jones with music direction by Charlie Alterman. Chicago is sponsored by Edward Jones.

The previously announced creative teams for the theatre's 2022 season will bring to the stage Chicago (June 13-19), Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot (June 22-28), Disney and Cameron Macintosh’s Mary Poppins (July 5-13), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (July 16-22), Legally Blonde, The Musical (July 25-31), The Color Purple (August 3-9) and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (August 12-18).
