Olivia Holt Talks Making Broadway Debut in 'Chicago,' From Rehearsals to Feeling Most Comfortable as Roxie Hart

Olivia Holt is opening up about her Broadway debut in the long-running show Chicago!

News of the 25-year-old actress and singer’s role was first revealed in early March, and she’s hitting the stage TONIGHT (April 10).

“can’t believe i’m typing this but i make my broadway debut tomorrow,” she tweeted the day before.

In a recent interview, Olivia shared what it’s been like rehearsing for the show and how she reacted when she first found out she booked it.

Check out what she said inside…

“My first day of rehearsals, [my] jaw dropped at everything. … I was just so thrilled,” Olivia shared with J-14. “My first day that I actually was comfortable with the dialogue, with the staging, with the numbers is the first time that I actually felt like Roxie.”

“My first day that I felt locked in was a whole different experience,” she added about when she felt most comfortable performing the role. “I’ll never forget it. I left that day feeling that I could maybe actually do this.”

How did she react when she found out she got the role – she had a “bodily experience”!

“I felt everything. I was in my home in L.A. when I got the call,” Olivia said. “I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t stand. I didn’t know what to — I couldn’t compute.”

You can catch Olivia Holt starring as Roxie Hart in Chicago at The Ambassador Theatre, starting TONIGHT (April 10) until June 4th. Tickets can be purchased at ChicagoTheMusical.com!
