She will GIVE THEM THE OLD RAZZLE DAZZLE one last time. After 21 years, celebrated performer Donna Marie Asbury is set to depart Broadway's longest running revival of Chicago The Musical next month. Her final performance at the Ambassador Theatre is set for June 3rd, 2019.
Asbury (who also appeared on Broadway in the original cast of Stephen Sondheim's short lived original production of Merrily We Roll Along, starred opposite Angela Lansbury in the 1974 revival of Gypsy, and more) has been the standout performer in the long running revival of Chicago since 1997 strutting the fishnet bodysuit as Merry Murderess "June" (a.k.a. SQUISH) plus understudying the roles of "Velma Kelly", "Roxie Hart", and "Matron Mama Morton". Her journey began on the show's National Tour before officially joining the New York company in 1999. Throughout her journey with the show, she's performed opposite numerous celebrity replacements, transferred the show from the Shubert to the Ambassador, was part of the musical's huge milestone performances (including the 10th, 20th, and the day the show began the 2nd Longest Running Show in Broadway History).
Also if you aren't able to make it in time, don't miss Asbury on June 19th, 2019 as she will be presenting a one night only solo concert at Feinstein?s/54 Below in celebration of wrapping up the incredible 21 year run in CHICAGO and her amazing Broadway career.
DON'T MISS DONNA MARIE ASBURY (THE MOST RAZZLE DAZZLE ENSEMBLE MEMBER OF BROADWAY'S CHICAGO) THROUGH JUNE 3RD, 2019. You will be missed.
Who is sad to see Donna leave?
