CHICAGO announces star casting!

John O'Hurley, currently playing the role of Billy Flynn on Broadway is taking off on the road, and heading to Tampa. You didn't know that he was a Broadway sensation? Here are some more fun and maybe surprising facts about Mr. Hurley (who you might remember from a little show called Seinfeld).
  • Named one of People magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive”
  • Last summer, he danced his way into the hearts of America as the ultimate champion of the highly rated ABC show “Dancing with the Stars”
  • He has a holiday book coming out on November 2nd called “It’s OK to Miss the Bed on the First Jump: And Other Life Lessons Learned from Dogs”
  • O’Hurley also just released a CD, called “Peace of Our Minds,” a collaboration of piano and cello compositions by O’Hurley and world renowned cellist Marston, sold out in 8 MINUTES on QVC and is a nationwide bestseller. “Peace of Our Minds,” the first completely independently produced CD to ever reach #13 on the Billboard Music charts
  • O'Hurley is now the regular host of NBC's "The National Dog Show presented by Purina," a Thanksgiving tradition to 21 million viewers
  • O’Hurley won a Screen Actors Guild Award for "Best Ensemble" for his work on "Seinfeld."
  • John lends his voice to several of America's most popular cartoons. He is currently playing "King Neptune" in "SpongeBob SquarePants"
  • It was O'Hurley's unique portrayal of the wry and witty "J. Peterman" on Seinfeld that led to dozens of advertising campaigns for companies such as Xerox, M & M’s, Progressive Insurance and The Travel Channel, earning him multiple advertising and marketing industry awards. In addition, life imitates art for John as he is John Peterman's (the real J. Peterman) business partner and part owner of the J. Peterman Company!
