• Pamela Anderson is making her Broadway debut in April
  • She will star as Roxie Hart in the revival production of “Chicago”
  • The former Playboy model said playing the role is a “dream fulfilled”

Pamela Anderson has joined the revival production of the Broadway musical “Chicago” as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

The 54-year-old actress will portray the murderess Roxie Hart this spring. She will sing and dance while playing the lead role for a total of eight weeks.

“I have always been a huge fan of Bob Fosse’s and Gwen Verdon’s work. Ann Reinking, too. Playing Roxie Hart is a dream fulfilled,” Anderson said in a statement to Deadline.

She continued, “Performing Fosse, you don’t have time to get in your head. You can’t dance, sing and think at the same time. There is a freedom, a unique joy in knowing it’s all about the work. Playing Roxie Hart is a sweet escape for me.”

The former Playboy model will first appear in the musical at Broadway’s Ambassador Theater on April 12, and her run as Roxie will end on June 5.

The femme fatale was created in 1975 for the John Kander, Fred Ebb and Fosse musical, and the role was first played by Gwen Verdon. In 1996, when the revival opened, Reinking took over the role.

Other stars who gave life to Roxie on the stage include Brooke Shields, Ashlee Simpson and Melanie Griffith.

Anderson’s outing as Roxie is monumental for her career since this will serve as her Broadway debut.

Aside from once being a Playboy Playmate, she also gained fame for playing lifeguard C.J. Parker on “Baywatch.” Her other credits include ABC’s hit sitcom “Home Improvement,” “V.I.P.” and “Barb Wire,” according to Variety.

The news of Anderson’s Broadway debut in “Chicago” comes about a week after Netflix announced its plans to move forward with a documentary chronicling the star’s life.

The documentary will be a direct response to the Hulu scripted series “Pam & Tommy” that starred Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee and Lily James as Anderson, according to Collider.

The dramatic retelling of the events that took place before and after the infamous sex tape of the two stars got leaked was slammed by Anderson for its inaccuracies.

One anonymous source told People that the eight-episode series “re-exploited” Anderson and “re-subjected” her to the “traumatizing situation.”

When Netflix announced the upcoming documentary early this month, the streaming giant put out a teaser that featured a personal note from Anderson about what fans can expect from the show.

“My life, a thousand imperfections, a million misperceptions. Wicked, wild and lost, nothing to live up to. I can only surprise you. Not a victim, but a survivor -- alive to tell her real story,” read Anderson’s message.
