Tonight, March 5, 2012, the acclaimed revival of the Tony Award-winning musical CHICAGO will welcome back Tony Yazbeck to the role of "that silver-tongued prince of the courtoom," Billy Flynn.
Tony Yazbeck's Broadway credits include Phil Davis in Irving Berlin's White Christmas, Tulsa in the recent revival of Gypsy starring Patti LuPone (for which he earned an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination), Al in A Chorus Line, Never Gonna Dance, Oklahoma! and Gypsy with Tyne Daly.
His Off-Broadway credits include the City Center Encores! productions of On the Town, Gypsy, The Apple Tree, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Pardon My English, as well as the York Theatre production of Fanny Hill.
His regional stage credits include Don Lockwood in Singin' in the Rain (Muny) Billy in My One and Only (Goodspeed, Connecticut Critics Circle Award), Alexas in Antony and Cleopatra (Hartford Stage), Andrew in Sycamore Trees (Signature, Helen Hayes Award), Wally in Animal Crackers (Goodman), Bobby in Crazy for You (Maine State), Tony in Copacabana (PCLO) and Tony in West Side Story (Trinity Rep.).
Yazbeck can be seen in the feature documentary Every Little Step. He has toured nationally in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Annie Get Your Gun and Doctor Dolittle.
In the role of Billy Flynn, Yazbeck replaces Latino star Marco Zunino, who concluded his Broadway debut engagement with CHICAGO on Sunday, March 4.
CHICAGO also stars Bianca Marroquin as Roxie Hart, Amra-Faye Wright as Velma Kelly, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart and Carol Woods as Matron "Mama" Morton.
As previously announced, world-renowned supermodel Christie Brinkley is set to reprise her Broadway role as Roxie Hart in a three-week limited return engagement beginning Friday, April 6.
