Model and actress Christie Brinkley had to call in sick for opening night of the musical "Chicago" at the Durham Performing Arts Center on Tuesday.
Brinkley has received critical acclaim for her debut as Roxie Hart in "Chicago" on Broadway and in London’s West End. She has been reprising the role on a nationwide tour.
The DPAC sent out an email late Tuesday afternoon to those with tickets to that night's performance stating that Brinkley would not be able to perform due to illness. A Broadway cast member was flown in to replace Brinkley, who might perform later in the week if approved by her doctor.
"Chicago" is at the DPAC through Sunday. Tickets are still available and you can get them through:
