Actress Brooke Shields this summer will make her first move from stage to director’s chair for the Hollywood Bowl’s production of “Chicago.”
It was also announced that Rob Fisher, who has served as a supervising music director in “Chicago” productions around the word, is set to conduct.
Shields previously played merry murderess Roxie Hart in both the 2005 Broadway production of the Bob Fosse musical and at London’s West End.
“My passion for ‘Chicago’ began decades ago, purely as a fan,” Shields said in a statement. “I am honored to have [been] asked to make my directorial debut on such an important musical, and one that is so dear to my heart.”
