Photos and Video: CHICAGO's Rumer Willis Performs 'Roxie' on GMA!

Actress and DANCING WITH THE STARS winner Rumer Willis made her Broadway debut as 'Roxie Hart' in Broadway's Chicago just last week. She will now play a 6-week limited engagement at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC) through Sunday, November 1, 2015. She just stopped by GMA to chat with Robin Roberts about her debut and perform what else, but "Roxie". Check out a video, followed by photos from the appearance below!

She joins international stage sensation Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Ryan Silverman as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhouras 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 byFred Ebb,Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history. Produced by Barry andFran 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, Chicagofeatures set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winnerWilliam Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and sound design byScott Lehrer.

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.
