The Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago announced today that Tony Award nominee Christopher Sieber will return to the show as "Billy Flynn" beginning tonight, Monday, December 12 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC). Paul Alexander Nolan played his final performance in the role on December 11.

Christopher Sieber has been a Broadway mainstay for more than 15 years. He has appeared in Beauty and the Beast, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Into the Woods, Chicago, Monty Python's Spamalot (Tony nomination), Shrek The Musical (Tony nomination), Pippin and, most recently, Matilda The Musical. His TV credits include "Two of a Kind," "Sex and the City," "It's All Relative," "Ed," "Elementary," "The Good Wife" and "Law & Order: SVU."

Chicago also currently stars Dylis Croman as Roxie Hart (through December 27 only; Mel B starts in the role on December 28), Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron "Mama" Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.

Directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, Chicago features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington, sound design by Scott Lehrer and casting by Stewart/Whitley.

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 hiring Chicago'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.
