Jane the Virgin star Jaime Camil will return to Broadway later this month, joining the cast of Chicago for a limited engagement as Billy Flynn. Camil will appear from May 31-July 3 at the Ambassador Theatre.

Over his 20-year career, Camil has released four platinum-selling albums and has appeared in the telenovelas La fea más bella and Qué pobres tan ricos. He currently stars as Rogelio de la Vega on Jane the Virgin. On Broadway, he appeared in Latinologues.

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. The revival is directed by Walter Bobbie.
