BWW TV Exclusive: CHICAGO's Carly Hughes Talks Her Big Broadway Year with Carole, Fosse & More!

Broadway's latest merry murderess, Carly Hughes, has had a huge year, jumping seamlessly from Beautiful, to Pippin and Chicago in a matter of months. Below, Broadway's new 'It Girl' chats with Richard Ridge about wrapping up her run as Velma Kelly, what's up next, and more!

Hughes' Broadway credits include: Pippin (Leading Player), Beautiful (Lucille/Lead Shirelle),The Book of Mormon (Ensemble/Mrs. Brown), Ghost (Louise, u/s Oda Mae), Ragtime (u/s Sarah, Ensemble), Putnam County Spelling Bee (Standby for Rona Lisa/ Marcy Park), ...The Grinch (Trixie, Mama Who u/s).

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 hiringChicago'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.
