From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Roxanne "Roxie" Hart is a fictional character originally from the 1926 play Chicago. The playwright, reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins, was inspired by the real-life 1924 murder trials of Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner (for separate crimes), which she covered for the Chicago Tribune (both women were acquitted). Annan was the basis for Roxie Hart.[1]

The play made it to Broadway in 1926 and ran for 172 performances. Gaertner attended the Chicago opening. Its adaptations include:

Performers who have portrayed Roxie Hart in the musical also include Katherine Edgar, Paige Davis, Liza Minnelli (who substituted for Gwen Verdon in the original production in 1975), Ann Reinking, Bianca Marroquin, Brooke Shields,[2] Ruthie Henshall, Melora Hardin,[3] Ashlee Simpson,[2] Melanie Griffith,[2] Samantha Harris, Michelle Williams,[2] Christie Brinkley[4] and Brandy Norwood.[5] Henshall, Simpson, Shields, and Williams have portrayed the character both on Broadway and The West End. Bebe Neuwirth, who won a Tony Award for the role of Velma Kelly in 1997, also portrayed Roxie in the same production in 2006.[2]
