VIDEO: Christie Brinkley Talks Making Her Return to Broadway in CHICAGO

Legendary supermodel Christie Brinkley was a guest on the fourth hour of TODAY on NBC. Brinkley sat down with Kathie Lee, Hoda and guest co-host Joel McHale to talk about returning to the part of Roxie Hart in the Broadway musical "Chicago."

Watch the interview below!

Back by popular demand, supermodel & actress Christie Brinkley will return to Broadway's Chicago as "Roxie Hart" for four weeks only, Thursday, April 18 to Sunday, May 12, 2019.

Prior to Broadway, Ms. Brinkley will play "Roxie Hart" in the Chicago National Tour at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, AZ from March 29 to April 2, followed by a limited seven-show engagement at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Resort Las Vegas from April 10-14.

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.

She honed her comedy chops in the hit comedy Celebrity Autobiography, where superstar memoirs are acted out live on stage. Celebrity Autobiography featured first-rate comedic ensemble performing from the actual memoirs of a wide range of celebrities and in a reoccurring role as "Gayle Gergich" on the NBC hit comedy, "Parks and Recreation."

Throughout her phenomenal career as one of the country's most successful and recognizable supermodels, Christie Brinkley excels as an artist, writer, photographer, designer, actress, philanthropist, environmentalist and political activist.

Combining her modeling experience with her artistic talents and diverse interests, Brinkley launched a line of natural skin care products as part of her company, Brinkley Beauty.

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.
