Legendary supermodel Christie Brinkley will return to the role of Roxie Hart in Broadway's Chicago for a limited run, April 18-May 12 at the Ambassador Theatre.

Brinkley first performed the role of Roxie in 2010 on Broadway, before reprising her performance in the West End production. She last played Roxie in 2012. Prior to her latest Broadway run, Brinkley will join the Chicago national tour at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, March 29-April 2, follows by a seven-show engagement April 10-14 at the Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas.

Additionally, the production has announced that actress Haley Swindal will take on the role of Matron "Mama" Morton for a two-week run, March 4-17. Swindal's past stage appearances include Jekyll & Hyde and The Secret Garden.

Featuring classic tunes by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a 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 crime into a barrage of sensational headlines. Recipient of six 1997 Tony Awards, the revival is directed by Walter Bobbie.
