Two-time Tony winner Bebe Neuwirth returned home to the Tony-winning musical Chicago for a special eight-week run as Matron “Mama” Morton. Seeing Neuwirth (who has also played both Velma and Roxie in the revival) grace the stage at the Ambassador Theatre is a true treat for Broadway fans, and it got us thinking about other Chicago alumni we’d like to see give it a second go. Below are seven sinfully sensational former Roxies and Velmas we think should return to Broadway’s longest-running revival ASAP.
