John O’Hurley in character as Billy Flynn in “Chicago”

John O’Hurley, who is still seen in syndication as J. Peterman on “Seinfeld” reruns in 85 countries around the world, is heading back to Our Town to reprise the role as Billy Flynn in the “Chicago” production. This latest tour of the iconic, Tony Award-winning musical will play the Bank of America Theatre Feb. 25 through March 2.

O’Hurley clearly loves the role and knows it well. He stepped into a Broadway revival of “Chicago” in 2006 and previously starred here in earlier national tours in 2010 and 2011.

Along with “Seinfeld,” the actor is known for hosting “Family Feud” from 2006 to 2010. He also finished second on the first season of “Dancing With the Stars,” and has hosted the Purina National Dog Show since 2002.
