The Tony-winning, record-breaking hit musical revival of Chicago has announced a national casting call, in partnership with Broadway.com, to find the next Roxie Hart to headline the Broadway production.
The Search for Roxie!, hosted by Broadway vet and former Chicago star Paige Davis, launches September 9 and will invite contestants to submit their audition tapes online to enter the casting call. Auditions will be filtered by the Chicago casting directors, producers and former stars. The top-three contestants will be flown, in partnership with American Airlines, the preferred airline for The Search for Roxie!, to New York City for in-person auditions with Chicago's casting directors and producers.
Auditions accepted now through October 7. Finalists will be contacted after October 24.
Broadway.com will film and produce a five-episode video series documenting the audition process, including interviews with the cast and creative team of Chicago, former celebrity Roxie Harts and footage of the contestants learning the iconic Roxie songs and dances. This will culminate with the official Broadway debut of the show's newest Roxie Hart onstage at the Ambassador Theatre.
Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, Chicago features a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Ebb. The production features direction by Walter Bobbie and choreography by Ann Reinking in the style of Fosse.
