CHICAGO, starring Christie Brinkley as Roxie Hart and John O'Hurley as Billy Flynn, dances into the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, May 15 - 27. Brinkley will make her highly-anticipated Los Angeles debut next week following her critically-acclaimed debut as Roxie Hart on Broadway and in London's West End. Joining her is John O’Hurley, best known for his role as J. Peterman on Seinfeld, who previously starred on Broadway in CHICAGO.
The cast also features Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Ron Orbach as Amos Hart, Carol Woods as Mama Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine, along with Shamicka Benn-Moser, Rachel Bickerton, Lenny Daniel,Phillip Groft, Daniel Gutierrez, Brent Heuser, Marla McReynolds, Celia Merendi, Nina Ordman, Adam Pellegrine, Steven Sofia, Jasond Thomas, Melanie Waldron, Tonya Wathen, Colt Weiss and Corey Wright. CHICACO is directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, it 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.
Orchestra level tickets for CHICAGO start at just $25 and may be purchased at www.BroadwayLA.org or by phone at 1-800-982-2787. The Pantages Theatre is located at 6233 Hollywood Boulevard, just east of Vine Street. The box office opens daily at 10 am.
