BWW TV: From Atlanta to Broadway- NeNe Leakes Returns to the Stage in CHICAGO!
Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago welcomes actress and TV sensation NeNe Leakes (Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"), returning to Broadway for four weeks only in the role of Matron "Mama" Morton, through December 20, 2015 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC).
Chicago currently stars Dylis Croman as Roxie Hart (thru Nov. 29 only - Bianca Marroquin returns Nov. 30), international stage sensation Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly (thru Nov. 29 only - Terra MacLeod returns Nov. 30), Jason Danieley as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiringChicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
