Christie Brinkley will not be able to perform the role of Roxie Hart this week in Durham.
According to press release issued Wednesday morning, following advice from her doctor, Brinkley will return to New York to recover from an illness.
"Christie is very disappointed as she was looking forward to playing the Durham Performing Arts Center in CHICAGO-the musical," added the press release. Producer, Barry Weissler said, The Durham audience deserves nothing but the best. I pulled Bianca Marroquin, one of our very best Roxies, from her Broadway performance and put her on the first flight out to North Carolina for the week. The show goes on!
Marroquin stepped into the role in 2002, other credits include In the Heights and The Pajama Game on Broadway. Additionally, she won the 2004 Helen Hayes Award for the Chicago National Tour.
