  • Dionne Warwick at Bally's

  • Chicago at Venetian Theatre

    Supermodel and actress Christie Brinkley is a style icon. She has graced the cover of more than 500 magazines, including Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue three times. She designed her own line of sunglasses, along with a line of “Real Model” dolls based on real models such as herself. She was the “Uptown Girl” in then-future ex-husband Billy Joel’s music video of the same name.

    You’d think that dazzling resume would be enough. But Brinkley told The New York Times that her fantasy career is “performing on Broadway.” Dreams do come true if you’re an internationally renowned beauty. “I got to live it,” Brinkley says. “I appeared several times in Chicago and will perform in the national road tour.”

    The long-running musical, which stops at the Venetian for seven performances, tells the story of murderous, fame-chasing chorus girl Roxie Hart (Brinkley) in Jazz Age Chicago. In addition to the star power, there’s choreography styled after Bob Fosse’s original moves and unforgettable songs like “All That Jazz,” “Cell Block Tango” and “Razzle Dazzle.” April 10-14, Wednesday-Friday, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday, 2 & 7:30 p.m.; $75-$183. –C. Moon Reed
