Bebe Neuwirth, who has won two Tony Awards, with one being for her acclaimed portrayal of jazz-age killer Velma Kelly in the revival of Chicago and returned ten years later as murderess Roxie Hart, will now step into the role of Matron “Mama” Morton for an eight-week limited engagement.

Neuwirth will return to the John Kander and Fred Ebb musical Jan. 14, 2014, and will continue through March 9 at the Ambassador Theatre.
