Henner heads to ‘Chicago’

Rivera to join London production

LAS VEGAS — Marilu Henner will make her Las Vegas debut on July 6, starring as Roxie Hart in the musical “Chicago.” She will replace Chita Rivera, who is joining the London production.

Henner will play the role for seven weeks because of prior commitments. “Chicago” is ongoing at the Mandalay Bay Theatre of the Mandalay Bay Resort.

Although this is Henner’s Vegas bow, she is no stranger to “Chicago,” having played the Roxie Hart role on Broadway. Best known for her role as Elaine Nardo in the TV series “Taxi,” Henner counts “Social Security,” “Pal Joey,” “Over Here,” and “Grease” among her other Broadway credits.
