"The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system."
The Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical CHICAGO announced today that actress Veronica Dunne, who currently stars as "Marisa" on Disney Channel's "K.C. Undercover," will make her Broadway debut as iconic femme fatale "Roxie Hart" beginning Monday, October 17, 2016. She will play a 6-week limited engagement at the Ambassador Theatre (219 W. 49th St., NYC) through Saturday, November 26, 2016.
Veronica Dunne, actress of stage and screen, currently stars on Disney's "K.C. Undercover" and recently wrapped production on the Lionsgate filmThe Ninth Passenger with Jesse Metcalfe. Veronica got her start on stage in the Lythgoe Family Production of Cinderella with Broadway veterans Shoshana Bean and Jennifer Leigh Warren. She went on to star in the stage productions of Into the Woods, Chicago, Cabaret and most recently, the world premiere of Joe Iconis' (NBC's "Smash") new musical, The Black Suits.
Chicago currently stars Dylis Croman as Roxie Hart, Lana Gordon as Velma Kelly, Jason Danieleyas Billy Flynn, 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 and sound design by Scott 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.
