The national touring production of the hit musical "Chicago" heading to the Hippodrome Theatre in March will feature John O'Hurley -- a.k.a. J. Peterman on "Seinfeld" -- as the sneaky lawyer Billy Flynn.

O'Hurley, known for appearances on "Dancing With the Stars" and as host of "Family Feud," is also a veteran of musicals, including a tour in "Brigadoon."

"Chicago," the jazzy Prohibition-era show with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb and a book by Ebb and Bob Fosse, will feature Roz Ryan as Matron "Mama" Morton of the Cook County Jail. Ryan is an 18-year veteran of this musical, on Broadway and on tour.

The cast includes other performers from the New York production of "Chicago," among them Bianca Marroquin, who made her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart.

"Chicago" will run March 3 to 8 at the Hippodrome, part of the Broadway Across America series there.
