The name on everybody’s lips is gonna be… Christie. Legendary supermodel Christie Brinkley will be joining Broadway’s massively successful revival of Chicago from April 4 to June 19, the AP reports. She’ll be starring as Roxie Hart, a woman who becomes famous after being arrested for killing her lover. The part has previously been played by other stars including Brooke Shields, Ashlee Simpson, and Melanie Griffith.
Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has a new finale of aerial acrobatics performed by Spider-Man/Peter Parker, a rep for the show confirms to EW. The new stunts have replaced the show’s old ending, in which a curtain dropped abruptly from the ceiling after a bit of dialogue between Peter Parker and Mary Jane. Earlier this month, producer Michael Cohl told EW that director Julie Taymor, writer Eric Berger, and composers Bono and the Edge were convening to reassess the musical in the weeks before its official opening night, now scheduled for March 15 after three lengthy postponements. (The show was originally scheduled to debut on Dec. 21 of last year.)
Despite accident-plagued preview performances and mixed early reviews, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark continues to sell strongly at the Broadway box office, grossing $1.25 million during the week ending Jan. 16.
