First Look: Billy Ray Cyrus as Billy Flynn in Broadway’s Chicago
“Oh tell your Aunt Louise”: we’ve got her first look at multi-platinum recording artist Billy Ray Cyrus as Chicago‘s infamous “silver-tongued prince of the courtroom” Billy Flynn.
As previously reported, Cyrus, best-known for “Achy Breaky Heart” and “Some Gave All,” will join the Broadway company at the Ambassador Theatre for a 7-week holiday engagement from November 5 to December 23.
This scintillating photo shows the hunky country heavyweight (and Hannah Montana star) in a classic tux designed by William Ivey Long, alongside two of the Cook County Jail’s scantily clad merry murderesses, Dylis Croman and Cristy Candler.
Chicago features Ann Reinking’s terrific choreography in the style of Bob Fosse’s original work — so don’t expect Mr. Cyrus to lead the audience in any line-dancing.
