Christie Brinkley is coming to Broadway.

She'll play Roxie Hart in Chicago for 11 weeks, beginning April 4 at the Ambassador Theater in New York, USA Today reports.

Her last turn as an actress was in a 2009 episode of Ugly Betty.

Brooke Shields, Bebe Neuwirth, Ashlee Simpson, Michelle Williams and Melanie Griffith are among the actresses who have played the role in the show’s 15-year run.

In 2002, Renee Zellweger was nominated for an Oscar for the role.
