Erich Bergen to Join Cast of Chicago on Broadway

Erich Bergen will soon be heading to the Ambassador Theatre to “give ’em the old razzle dazzle.” The Broadway company of the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical Chicago welcomes Erich Bergen in the role of Billy Flynn starting Monday, August 1 through Sunday, September 11.

Erich Bergen is best known as Blake Moran on the hit television show Madam Secretary, and was most recently seen as ADA Robert Jones on the final season of BULL. On the big screen, Bergen is known for his critically acclaimed portrayal of Bob Gaudio in the film Jersey Boys, reprising his performance from the touring and Las Vegas casts of the Tony-winning stage production. Bergen also recently appeared on Broadway (in several engagements) as Dr. Pomatter in Waitress. Other TV & Film credits include Gossip Girl, The Good Fight, Humor Me, and many more.

Chicago features a score by the legendary composing team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. The current revival was directed by Walter Bobbie, with choreography by Ann Reinking. The production includes a set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, and lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
