This spring, Pamela Anderson will take up the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway.
Broadway debut: The actress will play the famed wannabe vaudeville star who rose to fame after murdering the man she was having an affair with within the long-running performance. From April 12 to June 5, Anderson will perform at the Ambassador Theater for an eight-week run.
Anderson stated, “I have always been a tremendous fan of Bob Fosse’s and Gwen Verdon’s work, in a press release announcing the casting. The same goes for Ann Reinking. “It’s a dream come true to play Roxie Hart.” Fosse is a fast-paced show, and you don’t have time to think about anything else.” Dancing, singing, and thinking are all mutually exclusive. Knowing it’s all about the work gives you a sense of freedom and delight like no other. Roxie Hart is a wonderful way for me to unwind and unwind.”
Since Verdon first took on the role of Roxie on Broadway in 1975, a slew of legendary actresses has taken on the role. While Melanie Griffith, Christie Brinkley, Brooke Shields, & Ashlee Simpson Ross have all played the role, the 2002 film adaption starring Renée Zellweger as Roxie is the most recent.
Anderson said last week that she will be the subject of a Netflix documentary on her life. A handwritten note on Netflix letterhead, sealed with a lipstick kiss, was shared by the Baywatch star on Instagram. “This is the story of my life.” One thousand flaws. Hundreds of misconceptions,” she wrote. Wild, crazy, and disoriented. No expectations to meet. I’m not a victim; I’m a survivor, and I’m here, to tell the truth.”
As Roxie Hart, Pamela Anderson will make her Broadway debut at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City on April 12 through June 5 in Chicago. Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon have always been two of my favorite performers,” 54-year-old Anderson stated in a news statement. The same goes for Ann Reinking. It’s a dream come true to play Roxie Hart. You don’t have time to think when you’re dancing Fosse. At the same moment, you can’t sing, dance, and think. Knowing it’s all about the work gives you a sense of freedom and delight like no other. Roxie Hart is a wonderful way for me to unwind and unwind.”
Gwen Verdon played Roxie Hart in the 1975 Broadway show, which served as her stage debut. There have been a number of prominent celebrities who have taken Roxie’s place on the stage, including Ann Reinking and Ashlee Simpson Ross, and Michelle Williams has also appeared in the 2002 Chicago film adaption.
