Stephen Moyer & Samantha Barks: 'Chicago the Musical' Stars!

Stephen Moyer and Samantha Barks are set to star in a one weekend only staging of Chicago the Musical at the Hollywood Bowl!

The 43-year-old True Blood actor will play the lawyer Billy Flynn while the 22-year-old Les Miserables actress will play the role of murderer Velma Kelly.

Lucy Lawless will be playing Matron Mama Morton while Drew Carey will be play Amos Hart. The casting for leading lady Roxie Hart will be announced at a later date!

“I have a great feeling about this entire cast,” Brooke Shields, who is directing the production, said in a statement. “I am excited for everyone to see how brilliant Samantha Barks is on stage. We’ve seen Stephen Moyer sing on True Blood – and that dark, sexy side of Billy will be well served by him. Drew played the Dad in Hairspray at the Bowl two years ago, and he will bring not only comedy but depth to our Amos. I wouldn’t say no to anything Lucy Lawless ordered me to do…as “Mama” or in life!! And let’s not forget the most exciting character … the Bowl itself!”

Chicago will be performed at the Hollywood Bowl from July 26-28!
