John Schneider will be playing the role of sleezy, smooth-talking lawyer Billy Flynn in the latest revival of the Broadway musical, "Chicago."

The role was successfully played by Tom Wopat in the 2004 Broadway incarnation of "Chicago", which went on to tour the country in an off-Broadway production for another year. During the road stint, John Schneider filled in for Tom on occassion and did an excellent job. Tom returned to a Broadway production of "Chicago" for awhile in 2008.

"Chicago" runs so dang much on Broadway that it rotates different peformers into the leads fairly often. (this is true of most popular productions.) As of today, I don't have further details about exactly when John is taking the stage. What I found is this video that gives you a fun look at the racy outfits worn by the female performers, and how tiring (HA!) John seemed to find the photo shoot...

If you've never seen "Chicago", it's worth the price of admission. It's racy, dark-hearted fun based loosely on a true stroy of a Chicago murderess in the roaring '20's.
