Disney Channel star Veronica Dunne (K.C. Undercover) will return to the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago for a six-week limited run, February 12-March 24. Dunne, who last appeared in the production in 2016, succeeds Charlotte d'Amboise, who is currently playing the role.

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.

Chicago also currently stars Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. as Billy Flynn (thru February 10), Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron "Mama" Morton, and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
