Christie will play the role of Roxie Hart for the third time.
Christie Brinkley is a woman of many talents. From her impressive modeling career to starting her very own skincare line, it seems like there is nothing Christie can’t accomplish. And let’s not forget about her musical theater skills!
The three-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model made her Broadway debut in 2010, starring as Roxie Hart in Chicago. Christie reprised the role in 2012, and now she’s returning to the long-running musical to play Roxie for a third time.
“When Producer Barry Weissler offered me the chance to come back to Chicago The Musical, I thought I was dreaming...but it was actually my dream coming true...AGAIN!” Christie wrote in an Instagram caption announcing the big news.
