Pamela Anderson received a lot of support on her big night.

The actress, 54, was showered with love by her two sons, Brandon, 25, and Dylan, 24, at her first Broadway show.

At the curtain call, Anderson was photographed with a bouquet of red roses and her costume consisted of black fishnets and a black leotard.


“From ‘Baywatch’ to Broadway. I’m inspired by the unexpected,” Anderson told The Associated Press in March. “This is it, and I won’t be holding back anymore. I’m letting go. I’m ready to see what I’m capable of. For ‘Chicago,’ I’m going to put all my cards on the table. I’m doubling down – on me. “

Set in the 1920s, the musical is a scathing satire of how show business and the media make celebrities out of criminals. It has Bob Fosse-inspired choreography, skimpy outfits, and killer songs like “All That Jazz” and “Cell Block Tango.”

“Chicago” tells the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and dancer who murders her lover in the side after he threatens to leave her. To avoid conviction, Roxie hires Chicago’s most adept criminal attorney to help fool the public, the media, and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by creating shocking headlines.

“Pam is a very moral, extremely moral person. She cares about animals. She cares about the planet. She cares about people,” producer Barry Weissler said. “The difference between her as Pam and Roxie is that Roxie doesn’t care about anyone but herself, and she doesn’t care about the outside world as long as she can be famous. So Pam comes with Totally opposite attributes in life, but she fits because of her fame, what she’s been through in life.”

Anderson had a breakthrough role on ‘Home Improvement’ as the ‘Tool Time girl’ before gaining worldwide attention for playing CJ Parker on ‘Baywatch’. His credits include “Barb Wire” and “Superhero Movie”.


There has been renewed interest in Anderson’s life story thanks to the Hulu series “Pam & Tommy”, which stars Lily James as Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Tommy. Lee and fictionalises their whirlwind romance. Anderson also announced a new authorized documentary about her upcoming life from Netflix this month.

Weissler said he approached Anderson about the Roxie part over a decade ago, but their schedules didn’t work out.

The star-hungry heroine at the heart of “Chicago” has been played by dozens of women since the show opened in 1996, including Melanie Griffith, Christie Brinkley, Marilu Henner, Brooke Shields, Lisa Rinna, Gretchen Mol, Ashlee Simpson , Brandy Norwood, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Givens.

The revival managed to last a quarter of a century thanks to the shrewd decision to replace celebrities in all leading roles – essentially having famous artists join a musical about celebrity venality – and shaping the show around their strengths.
