As if this tale of murder, greed, adultery, and exploitation wasnt enough to snap your garters, the new production of Chicagoat the Arsht Center promises to make the blood boil with Sofia Vergara starring in the role of Mama Morton.
Vergara, undeniably one of the hottest stars of Hispanic television, brings bombshell sizzle to her role of cellblock diva in this award-winning musical set amid the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s. The steamy production weaves the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who viciously slays her illicit lover after he threatens to dump her. The malicious minx then hires a highfalutin criminal attorney to transform her transgression into a barrage of sensational headlines that could have easily been torn from todays tabloids. Vergara is featured in the recent box office smash Tyler Perrys Madea Goes to Jail, and her credits also include the torrid 2008 telenovela Fuego en la Sangre and guest appearances on Entourage, Eve, and Baywatch, as well as numerous talk shows.
