Brooke Shields is coming back to Broadway to play Roxie Hart in the long-running revival of "Chicago."

Shields, currently starring in the London production of the Kander and Ebb musical, joins the New York company Sept. 9 at the Ambassador Theatre. The show is in its ninth year on Broadway.

The actress scored a critical and popular success in New York last season when she stepped into the role of Ruth Sherwood in the revival of "Wonderful Town."

Shields also has appeared on Broadway as Rizzo in the revival of "Grease!" and as Sally Bowles in "Cabaret."

She also recently wrote a book, "Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression," about her experiences after giving birth to daughter Rowan Francis in 2003.
