Award-winning singer, actress, dancer and television personality Ruthie Henshall is familiar to millions through her work on stage and screen. Her association with Chicago began in 1997, when she originated the role of Roxie Hart in the London production. Two years later she joined in the Broadway company, playing the role of Velma Kelly. A five-time Olivier Award nominee, Henshall's other West End stage credits include Marguerite, Cats, Miss Saigon, Crazy for You, Peggy Sue Got Married, She Loves Me, Les Miserables and Oliver! Ruthie first headed to the U.S. in 1998, and after only three weeks was offered a leading role in Ziegfeld Follies of 1936. She then went on to star in the Broadway productions of Miss Saigon, Putting It Together and the David Ives play The Other Woman. Other work includes: "Dancing on Ice," "Friday Night Is Music Night" (Radio 2).A true New York City institution, Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping-song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you've ever seen. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards®, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations. It's also no surprise that Chicago has wowed audiences all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa.
But the hottest place to experience it is on Broadway. There's always someone fabulous center stage. Whether you're looking for your first Broadway musical... whether you've seen the Academy Award®-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage... or whether you've seen it before and want to recapture the magic, Chicago always delivers.
