LIMITED RUN! MAY 8-13, 2018






Miami, Florida – The national touring company of the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking hit musical CHICAGO (@chicagomusical) will welcome Latin sensation & “Jane the Virgin” star Jaime Camil (@jaimecamil) as he makes his tour debut in the role of “Billy Flynn” beginning Tuesday, May 8, 2018. He will play a one-week limited engagement at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (@arshtcenter) until Sunday, May 13th.

Broadway History was made in 2016 when, for the first time ever, two Mexican-born actors led a Broadway musical! Together again – Latin superstars, and long-time friends, Jaime Camil and Bianca Marroquín (@biancapamelamarroquin) will appear on stage opposite each other reprising their Broadway roles as “Billy Flynn” and “Roxie Hart” in Miami’s limited engagement of only eight performances! Bianca Marroquín is a CHICAGO veteran having appeared in the Broadway cast off and on since 2002.

Jaime Camil is one of the most well-known actors in the Spanish-speaking world and now the USA is welcoming him with open arms thanks to his performance as “Rogelio de la Vega” in the critically-acclaimed and multi-awarded TV show “Jane the Virgin.” He’s a Critic’s Choice and Teen Choice Award nominee and an Imagen Award winner for the role. He has starred in more than 20 award-winning films including Pulling Strings and 200 Cartas (alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda) and has won global and countless film and theater awards throughout his over 20-year career. Mr. Camil has led the most successful and highest-rated telenovelas of all time, including “La Fea Más Bella,” “Por Ella Soy Eva” and “Qué Pobres Tan Ricos.” He has recorded four platinum-selling albums and has led many musicals in his native Mexico City including West Side Story, Hook, Aladdin, El Diluvio que Viene and more. In 2005, he led the Broadway-bound musical The Mambo Kings, he previously appeared on Broadway in Latinologues and he also starred in a successful three-night only summer 2017 production of Mamma Mia! at the Hollywood Bowl playing the role of “Sam Carmichael” opposite Jennifer Nettles as “Donna.” Mr. Camil was also the voice of “Papá” in the Academy Award-winning animated feature, Coco, which is the top-grossing film of all time in Mexico. Mr. Camil is repped by Zero Gravity Management.

 CHICAGO also stars Bianca Marroquín as Roxie Hart, Terra C. MacLeod as Velma Kelly, Paul Vogt as Amos Hart, Jennifer Fouché as Matron “Mama” Morton and D. Ratell as Mary Sunshine.

With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, CHICAGO is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, CHICAGO is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.

The national tour is directed by David Hyslop and choreographed by David Bushman. Walter Bobbie is the director of the original New York Production and Ann Reinking was the original choreographer in the style of Bob Fosse. CHICAGO features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer and casting by Stewart/Whitley. The production also features orchestrations by Ralph Burns, supervising music direction by Rob Fisher.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.


Tickets to CHICAGO are available through the Arsht Center Box Office in person at 1300 Biscayne Blvd. Miami, FL 33132, by calling 305.949.6722, or online at arshtcenter.org. Ticket prices start at $29*.
