Supermodel and actress Brinkley received critical acclaim in 2010 when she made her Broadway stage debut as merry murderess Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning hit musical CHICAGO. She continued her stage success reprising the role in London’s West End for a limited four-week run and again, wowed the sold-out audiences. Back by popular demand, Brinkley reprised the role of Roxie Hart in 2012 with a return engagement on Broadway.
