Hello, Roxie! Broadway Newbie Melora Hardin Sasses Up Chicago

The country may know Melora Hardin from her recurring role on NBC’s hit sitcom The Office, but that could easily change now that the woman’s made her official Broadway debut in Chicago. On December 29, Hardin stepped into the spotlight as Roxie Hart at the Ambassador Theatre with her own brand of showstopping razzle-dazzle. Though her resume is heavier with film/TV roles than theater credits, Hardin’s no celebrity Broadway dabbler, as both her parents are musical vets and she grew up on a steady diet of showtunes. The phrase “in the blood” may be a cliché, but in Hardin’s case, it’s the truth! Click on to see Chicago stars Tom Hewitt and Brenda Braxton welcome Broadway’s new Roxie Hart!
