Charlotte d'Amboise will return to the Broadway company of Chicago, currently playing the Ambassador Theater, on November 3. She will once again portray merry murderess Roxie Hart.

Chicago features a score by John Kander and the late Fred Ebb, including such hits as "All That Jazz," "Mister Cellophane," "Razzle Dazzle," and "Nowadays." The production is directed by Walter Bobbie with choreography by Ann Reinking. The musical won six 1997 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.

The long-running musical also currently features Michelle DeJean as Roxie Hart (through November 2), Brenda Braxton as Velma Kelly, Tom Wopat as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, and Carol Woods as Matron "Mama" Morton. As previously announced, Terra C. MacLeod will appear as Velma Kelly for one week, October 27-November 2, prior to kicking off the tenth national tour of Chicago.

D'Amboise received Tony nominations for her performances in A Chorus Line and Jerome Robbins' Broadway. She has performed the role of Roxie more than 2,000 times on Broadway, and various national tours, earning the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Ovation Award, and the Bay Area Theatre Circle Award for her performance. Additional Broadway credits include Sweet Charity and Damn Yankees, both of which earned her a Fred Astaire Award; Contact, Company, Carrie, Song and Dance, and Cats.
