The Ambassador Theatre is set to welcome a new silver-tongued Prince of the Courtroom! Christopher Fitzgerald will return to Chicago on Broadway as Billy Flynn beginning August 5. Last October he starred in the production as "Mister Cellophane" Amos Hart. Fitzgerald will take over from Brent Barrett, who played his final performance on July 27.
Fitzgerald picked up Tony nods for his performances in Finian's Rainbow and Young Frankenstein. Other Broadway credits include Amour, Wicked and The Merchant of Venice. His screen credits include Girl Most Likely, Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant, Personal Velocity and Twins.
Chicago also currently stars Bianca Marroquin as Roxie Hart, Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Paul C. Vogt as Amos Hart and Carol Woods as Matron "Mama" Morton.
With a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
