Tony Award nominee Kevin Chamberlin joined the company of Chicago as Roxie's all-but-invisible husband, Amos Hart. BroadwayWorld gave Kevin a FLIP video camera and set him loose backstage during performances, and wait until you see what 'Mr. Cellophane' was able to create for your viewing pleasure, but we won't tell, so go watch now!
Kevin Chamberlin most recently appeared on Broadway last season in the Roundabout Theatre Company's production of The Ritz. He has received Tony nominations for his performances in Seussical and Dirty Blonde. His other Broadway credits include My Favorite Year and Triumph of Love.
His big-screen credits include Road To Perdition, Die Hard with a Vengeance, In & Out, Trick and the upcoming Ang Lee film Taking Woodstock.
"Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids," explain press notes.
With a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
