Photo Coverage: Christie Brinkley Returns to CHICAGO on Broadway
Supermodel and actress Christie Brinkley has returned to Broadway's Chicago as "Roxie Hart" for four weeks only! She began performances on Thursday, April 18 and will perform in the show until Sunday, May 12, 2019.
BroadwayWorld was there for the start of her run, and you can check out the photos below!
Ms. Brinkley received critical acclaim in 2010 when she made her Broadway stage debut as merry murderess "Roxie Hart" in Chicago. She continued her stage success reprising the role in London's West End for a limited four-week run and again, wowed sold-out audiences. Back by popular demand, Brinkley reprised the role of Roxie Hart in 2012 with a return engagement on Broadway.
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.
