Chicago just broke its own record.

After 27 years on stage — and with new lead Ariana Madix — the Broadway show just earned its highest-grossing non-holiday performance week during the Jan. 29- Feb. 4, 2024 week, reports Broadway World.

Throughout the previous week and the start of Madix's two-month run, the show earned $939,177.40, breaking its previous record of $926,363.35. The old record was set during the week of March 20-26, 2023.

The ongoing production of Chicago is Broadway’s longest-running American musical in history and was the basis for a 2002 film. The Academy Award-winning movie musical starred Renée Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and scored wins for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress for Zeta-Jones, 54, who played Velma.

With a book by Bob Fosse and Fred Ebb, plus music by John Kander and lyrics by Ebb, the revival of Chicago won six Tony Awards in 1997. It includes some of the most beloved songs in musical theater history, including “All That Jazz,” “The Cell-Block Tango,” “When You’re Good to Momma" and "Razzle Dazzle.”

Madix’s appearance follows an impressive line of Bravo stars who have taken their turns in the show. Others include RHOBH stars Erika Girardi and Lisa Rinna, as well as Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burrus and NeNe Leakes.
