Lucy Lawless Peppers Our Ragu in "Chicago"
by Teresa Ortega, www.insequence.org
When I first read that Lucy Lawless would be appearing in the musical "Chicago" in New Zealand, my first impulse was to price out the cost of air travel, hotel and tickets. My second impulse was to sit quietly in a darkened room, pondering my career and financial choices and the harsh realities of the world we live in.
After I crept out of my despondency, I happened to notice a few weeks later that a production of "Chicago" would be coming to the Hollywood Bowl over the summer. Noticing that the production was yet to be cast, I held out hope that I might get to see Lucy Lawless perform in "Chicago" closer to home.
When the cast was announced, Lucy Lawless was named to play Matron "Mama" Morton, the same role filled by Queen Latifah in the movie version of "Chicago." With Lucy set to play Velma Kelly in the New Zealand "Chicago production later this year, those fans who can afford it will have the opportunity to see Lucy in two different roles in one musical.
