As we posted earlier in the day about Lucy’s upcoming gig playing Mama Morton at the Hollywood Bowl, Lucy tweeted about it.
I don’t think this has happened before where Lucy is in the same show but different roles on different dates (outside of Xena where she had multiple roles ie Xena, Meg, Princess Diana) She is starring as Velma Kelly in the Auckland Theatre Company production of Chicago and Mama Morton in the Hollywood Bowl Production of Chicago.
Here are Lucy’s Tweets

Here’s Lucy’s Profile on the Hollywood Bowl site
LUCY LAWLESS can currently be seen as “Diane,” the girlfriend of Nick Offerman’s “Ron Swanson,” on the critically acclaimed comedy Parks and Recreation. Lawless did five episodes of the show last season, and is expected to return in the fall. She was also just seen in Academy Award winning director Jane Campion’s miniseries Top of the Lake.
Before joining the hit NBC comedy, Lucy spent three years working in her homeland New Zealand on the STARZ series Spartacus. Lawless’ portrayal of the complex and often wicked “Lucretia” delighted critics and fans alike. The show broke all records for STARZ and turned the network into a top destination for original programming.
Lawless, a New Zealander, rose to international fame through her groundbreaking performance as the title character in Xena: Warrior Princess, the cult hit series also executive produced by Spartacusproducers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi. She solidified her “fan-boy cred” when she joined the critically acclaimed SyFy Channel series Battlestar Galactica as “D’Anna/Number Three.”
In addition to these roles, Lucy has continued to demonstrate her versatility with a wide range of television work….both comedy and drama…in such notable projects as Flight of the Conchords, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The L Word, CSI: Miami, Burn Notice, and The X-Files.
In film, she played “Aspen” in Adam Sandler’s Bedtime Stories, “Mother Superior” in the cult favorite Bitch Slap, a dominatrix in EuroTrip, and had cameos in Raimi’s Spider Man, and Tapert’s Boogeyman.
Lawless is a member of the board of the Starship Foundation, the fundraising body for the Starship Children’s Hospital in her hometown Auckland. She was made a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2004.
