Bianca Marroquin and Carol Woods Return to Chicago March 31
By Andrew Gans
Latina stage and screen star Bianca Marroquin and theatre favorite Carol Woods return to the long-running, Tony-winning Broadway revival of Chicago March 31.
Marroquin again steps into the role of merry murderess Roxie Hart, and Woods rejoins the company as Matron "Mama" Morton.
The Broadway production also stars Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Olivier Award nominee Brent Barrett as Billy Flynn and two-time Tony Award nominee Christopher Fitzgerald.
The revival of Chicago began life as one of the three annual Encores! presentations offered by City Center. The musical opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in November 1996 where it remained through February 1997. The musical transferred to the Shubert Theatre on Feb. 11, 1997, and played that house through Jan. 26, 2003. The revival reopened at the Ambassador Theatre, its current home, on Jan. 29, 2003.
Chicago won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical in 1997 as well as awards for actors Bebe Neuwirth and James Naughton, director Walter Bobbie, lighting designer Ken Billington and choreographer Ann Reinking. The original production was directed and choreographed by the late Bob Fosse.
The Ambassador Theatre is located at 219 W. 49th Street.
