The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system.

CHICAGO to Welcome Back Broadway Vets This Month

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.

Ms. Davis and Ms. Wright will take over for current Chicago stars Jennifer Nettles and Carly Hughes, both of whom conclude their limited engagements as Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly on Sunday, March 29.

In addition to Chicago, Paige Davis has appeared on Broadway in Boeing-Boeing (Gloria) and in the national tours of Sweet Charity (Charity), Beauty and the Beast (Babette) and The Vagina Monologues.

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.

A celebrated Chicago veteran since 2001, Amra-Faye Wright has the distinction of being the only actress in history to have played the iconic role of Velma Kelly on five continents.

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.

CHICAGO also stars Tony Award nominee John Dossett as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron "Mama" Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
