Unlike all the other “stars” who announce they’ll be in Chicago way in advance, Blossom brother and long-lost twin of the Cracker Jack mascot Joey Lawrence waited ’til the day of. He’ll be on Broadway as the “slick” (as in scalp) lawyer Billy Flynn from tonight until June 17.
It’s too bad Joey won’t be part of the same cast as fellow Dancing With the Stars losers Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna, who are slated to play Flynn and Roxie Hart from June 19-July 29. They could have all gathered on stage at random points throughout the show to remind the audience they were performing “Liiiiiiiiiiive!” Can’t the producers tweak Chicago just a little bit to include some sort of sailor character for Joey? He pulls the look off so well. Tell me you would not go see this.
I would not go see this.
