Brandy takes on the Iconic Role of Roxie Hart in the musical “Chicago,” the second longest running Broadway show of all time. Set in the 20s, house wife and night club dancer Roxie kills her lover after he breaks up with her.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she  invents her defense and manipulates everyone from her trustworthy husband to the fickle media and the unsuspecting public.

Yes, 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. Her case explodes into a media sensation.

A “Today Show” broadcaster called Brandy’s role in the smash hit “something wonderful, sweet and fabulous.”

For a limited eight-week run, from April 28 through June 21, Brandy guest stars  performing opposite “Chicago” veteran Amra-Faye Wright, who plays Velma Kelly.

The duo was known primarily for their stage musicals in the 60s. Kander and Ebb were introduced by their mutual music publisher Tommy Valando in 1962.

The current revival production of “Chicago” opened November 14, 1996 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.  For eight weeks, the cast stars, Brandy Norwood.  Amra-Faye Wright, Raymond Bokhour (Amos Hart), John Dossett (Billy Flynn), and NaTasha Yvette Williams (Matron Mama Morton) are regular cast members.
