New York, Feb 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) For many years, we have known Christie Brinkley as a supermodel. She is, undoubtedly, one of the most successful (and long lasting) models; with a modeling career spanning over more than three decades. And just when we thought we had heard all about Christie, we are informed that she is due to make a debut on the Broadway, acting as Roxie Hart in the highly acclaimed musical, ‘Chicago.’
Unknown to many people is the fact that Christie Brinkley is not just the typical ‘pretty face supermodel.’ She is also a talented artist, with interests in writing, acting, design and photography. Christie Brinkley has also done a considerable amount of work in environmental and political activism, as well as philanthropy. Her debut in the Broadway will be yet another feather to her cap.
Emerging details about her Broadway debut are that she will be appearing on stage at the Ambassador theater, for the engagement which spans over eleven weeks, between early April and Mid June 2011.
Christie is amongst the most remarkable people to act Roxie Hart in the Chicago musical, which won the Tony award some time back. Others who have played the role before her include Ashlee Simpson and Sandy Duncan.
