Disney Channel's Veronica Dunne Makes Broadway Debut in Chicago
Dunne is the latest Roxie Hart to take the stage at the Ambassador Theatre.
Veronica Dunne, the star of the Disney Channel's K.C. Undercover, made her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre on October 17. She will be in the musical until November 26.
In addition to her work on the Disney Channel, Dunne recently wrapped production on the Lionsgate film The Ninth Passenger with Jesse Metcalfe. The actress got her start onstage in the Lythgoe Family Production of Cinderella with Broadway veterans Shoshana Bean and Jennifer Leigh Warren, and went on to star in the stage productions of Into the Woods, Chicago, Cabaret, and most recently, the world premiere of Joe Iconis' new musical, The Black Suits.
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.
