Christie Brinkley - Christie Brinkley To Star In London's Chicago?

Former supermodel Christie Brinkley is set to make her West End bow in the musical role that launched her on Broadway, according to theatre news reports.
The former wife of Billy Joel has received warm reviews as Roxie Hart in Chicago and now she's set to spend the summer (11) in London playing the singing-and-dancing murderess.
According to Showbiz411.com, Brinkley and co-star Amra-Faye Wright will star in the West End's Chicago for a limited engagement from next month (Jul11).
She's not the only big U.S. name to have graced the London stage as Hart - singer Ashlee Simpson played the part in 2006 and 2007.
And on Broadway, the killer with dreams of fame has been played by Brooke Shields, Marilu Henner and Melanie Griffith.

I have seen Christie in this role and she is amazingly wonderful! She sings, dances and acts her heart out with so much joy and yes, heart as Roxie Hart that is surpising that we have not seen her on Broadway before now! She is right at home on the Great White Way and is surely an inspiration to me and many, many others I'm sure!!
