Chicago announced that TV personality, actor, and author Ariana Madix (Vanderpump Rules, Dancing With the Stars) will return to the role of Roxie Hart. Ariana broke box office records for Chicago, Broadway’s longest-running American musical, during her first appearance as Roxie earlier this year. She will be in the show August 1-August 27 at the Ambassador Theatre.

With a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer in the 1920s, who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival.

Directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Tony Award winner Ann Reinking, Chicago features set design by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington, and sound design by Tony Award winner Scott Lehrer.
