The Name on Everybody’s Lips Is Amy Spanger: Thumbs Up! to Chicago’s Sensational Leading Lady

The Name on Everybody’s Lips Is Amy Spanger: Thumbs Up! to Chicago’s Sensational Leading Lady
Amy Spanger in 'Chicago'
Amy Spanger gives a true star performance as Roxie Hart in 'Chicago.'

Leading lady Amy Spanger is putting the spark back into the long-running musical Chicago. Spanger has been delighting Broadway audiences for years, with memorable star turns in Kiss Me Kate, The Wedding Singer and Rock of Ages, but as Jazz Age murderess Roxie Hart, she is nothing short of incredible. In addition to her powerful voice and 1920s-style kewpie doll looks, Spanger's performance is remarkable because of her unique character choices. Has Roxie ever been this funny without veering into caricature? Her magnetic delivery in “We Both Reached for the Gun” and “I Can’t Do It Alone” includes priceless reactions to Velma, physical comedy maneuvers and devilishly aware moments as the ventriloquist dummy. Beyond that, her big solo “Roxie” is one of the strongest showstoppers on Broadway right now: With tears in her eyes, Spanger becomes the damaged blonde chorine in a transformation that’s rare even by Broadway standards. Whether you’ve seen Chicago 10 times or have yet to make your first visit, now is the time to slick your hair, wear your buckle shoes and head over to the Ambassador Theatre to see Amy Spanger as Roxie Hart alongside Alexander Gemignani as Billy Flynn and Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly. Razzle dazzle, indeed!
