The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system.
On Monday, March 30, the company of Broadway's Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago will welcome back two of its most celebrated stars: Emmy Award nominee Paige Davis as Roxie Hart and international stage sensation Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly.
She is best known to television audiences as the host of TLC's groundbreaking, Emmy-nominated series "Trading Spaces," the Hallmark Channel's "Home and Family" and as the Emmy-nominated host of OWN's "Home Made Simple." She is the author of the New York Times Bestseller Paige by Paige.
Davis will star as Roxie Hart for a limited four-week return engagement through Monday, April 27.
Her portrayal of Velma has been seen on Broadway; in London's West End; on tour throughout the U.S., Europe and United Kingdom; in Rio de Janeiro; in multiple engagements in her native South Africa (Johannesburg and Cape Town); and an unprecedented four-week engagement in Japan in 2011, where she performed the role entirely in Japanese.
Wright's other theatrical credits include Vi Moore in Footloose (UK tour), Sandy in Grease! (Johannesburg Superbowl), Sheila in A Chorus Line (Civic Theatre, Johannesburg) and Mother Superior in Nunsense! (Sneddon, Durban), as well as regional productions of Peter Pan, Jack and the Beanstalk, Viva Sun City, Elvis Las Vegas and numerous musical extravaganzas throughout the world.
Wright will star as Velma Kelly on Broadway through Sunday, July 26.
