Angelica Ross is set to become the first transgender actress to play Roxie Hart in 'Chicago'. The 41-year-old 'Pose' star will make her Broadway debut in the long-running musical later this year, playing murderous vixen Roxie for eight weeks from September 12.

Actresses who have previously played Roxie include Pamela Anderson, Melanie Griffith, Christie Brinkley, Marilu Henner, Brooke Shields and Lisa Rinna.
