The once and current Billy Flynns. James Naughton won a Tony Award for playing the slimey lawyer who only cares about "love" in Chicago, celebrating its sixth anniversary on Broadway Nov. 17. Sharing his character's name is filmdom's Billy Zane (with his girlfriend Emma Howard), who took over the role on Nov. 7.

The Broadway production of Chicago celebrated its sixth anniversary Nov. 17 with a party at Time Hotel after the Sunday night performance. The musical comedy, a Tony-winning transfer from the popular Encores! series and a soon-to-be motion picture, currently stars Australian stage star Caroline O'Connor as Velma Kelly, Broadway veteran Charlotte d'Amboise as Roxie Hart with Rob Bartlett as Amos Hart and Roz Ryan as Matron "Mama" Morton. Chicago will move from the Shubert Theatre, where it has resided for the past six years, on Jan. 26 to reopen at the Ambassador Theatre on Jan. 29.
