The cast currently stars Leigh Zimmerman (Velma Kelly), Charlotte d'Amboise (Roxie), Tom Hewitt (Billy Flynn), Lavon Fisher-Wilson (Mama Morton), Robert Creighton (Amos Hart) and R. Lowe (Mary Sunshine).

The musical is directed by Walter Bobbie, with choreography by Ann Reinking, scene design by John Lee Beatty, costumes by William Ivey Long, lighting by Ken Billington and sound by Scott Lehrer.
