Joey Lawrence, who portrays Clay Dobson on the hit CBS series "CSI: NY," is making his Broadway debut as Billy Flynn in the smash musical Chicago, which plays the Ambassador Theatre.  Lawrence began performances on May 4th and will continue through June 17th.

Lawrence, who began his career appearing on national TV commercials at age 3, caught the eye of Johnny Carson who put him on his late night 'Tonight Show.' His appearance on that show launched his television career and he was cast in his first regular series, "Gimme a Break," opposite Nell Carter. From there, he starred as Joey Russo on the NBC series "Blossom." Other TV appearances have included "Brotherly Love" and "American Dreams." Lawrence's film credits include Carl Reiner's Summer Rental, Chains of Gold, Radioland Murderers and Urban Legends as well as voicing the title character in the Disney film Oliver & Company.  Along with his acting credits, he released the multi-platinum album "Joey Lawrence" in 1993, for which he embarked on a world tour. Audiences watched Lawrence dance their way into their living room on season 3 of the hit ABC "Dancing with the Stars," in which he placed second amongst all the contestants. In addition, he toured the U.S. and Canada in the show's national tour covering 42 cities in 8 weeks.

Chicago, the worldwide hit, is produced by Barry and Fran Weissler and is the winner of 6 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.  It currently has the distinction of being the longest-running revival on Broadway. The cast also includes Bianca Marroquin as Roxie Hart, Brenda Braxton as Velma Kelly, Rob Bartlett as Amos Hart, Roz Ryan as Matron Mama Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
