The 'Vanderpump Rules' star is the latest Bravolebrity to join the long-running musical revival
Ariana Madix is going to be the name on everybody's lips.
The reality star will make her Broadway debut this January, starring as Roxie Hart for a limited eight-week run in the long-running hit, Chicago.
"It's just the biggest dream come true," she said on Live with Kelly and Mark Thursday, announcing the news. "I cannot believe this is real life. I'm going to cry."
It's the realization of a longtime goal for Madix, who studied musical theatre at Flagler College and first moved to New York City after graduation, with hopes to land a spot on the Great White Way.
She never made it then, moving instead to Los Angeles where she would go on to find fame as a cast member on Vanderpump Rules.
Ten years into her run on that show, Madix broke through the Bravoverse and into the cultural zeitgeist after making the life-rocking discovery that Tom Sandoval, her boyfriend of nine years, had been carrying on a months-long affair with her friend and castmate Rachel "Raquel" Leviss.
She pivoted that personal heartache into an impressive range of projects, including a star turn in Lifetime's Buying Back My Daughter, a new cocktail book, a slew of high-profile brand partnerships and a run on season 32 of Dancing with the Stars, where on Tuesday, she place third.
Now Madix will finally take her Broadway bow. Her run in Chicago at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City will begin Monday, Jan. 29, 2024 and will go through March 24.
Chicago is Broadway’s longest running American musical in history, the revival having opened in 1996.
With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, and with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, the musical won six Tony awards in 1997. It includes some of the most beloved songs in musical theater history, including “All That Jazz,” “The Cell-Block Tango,” “When You’re Good to Momma,” “Roxie,” and “Razzle Dazzle.”
