Additional participants have been announced for the post-show “Tuesday Talkback” series for the Broadway musical Chicago, currently at the Ambassador Theatre. Two-time Tony nominee Charlotte d’Amboise will be featured on March 10, while Amra-Faye Wright and Carol Woods will participate March 24.

D’Amboise has played Roxie Hart more than any actress in the show’s history. She rejoined the Broadway company on February 13, and will then star in the national tour beginning February 26. Wright is currently playing Velma Kelly on Broadway, and has played that role in productions around the world, including London’s West End, Johannesburg and Capetown, South Africa, and on tour throughout Europe and the United Kingdom. Woods, who plays Mama Morton, has appeared on Broadway or in the national tours of The Full Monty, One Mo’ Time, Follies, Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Stepping Out, The Goodbye Girl, Grind, Big River, and The Crucible.

The musical has 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.
