Erika Girardi To Play Roxie Hart In Broadway’s Chicago The Musical!

Erika Girardi will be making her Broadway debut this January. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star will play the role of the murderous housewife and aspiring nightclub singer Roxie Hart in the Tony-winning revival of Chicago the Musical.

Erika will begin performances on Jan. 6, 2020. Her 12-week limited engagement run wraps up on March 29.

“I’m beyond excited to join the cast of the legendary musical Chicago,” Girardi told PEOPLE in a statement. “Having been a fan of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon’s work it is an honor and a dream to play Roxie Hart.”

Girardi won't be the first time a Housewives' star has performed in the show on Broadway, either.

Most recently, Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burrus and NeNe Leakes made their debuts on the Great White Way, both in the role of Matron Mama Morton.

Girardi’s own RHOBH co-star Lisa Rinna played Roxie Hart in the show on Broadway, back in 2007.

Back in July, Luann de Lesseps revealed that she was in talks to join the show as Mama Morton as well, but was “working out dates.”
