Ariana Madix makes her Broadway debut

Ariana Madix has made her debut on Broadway.

The 38-year-old TV star appeared in a production of 'Chicago' at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City on Monday night (29.01.24).

Ariana starred as Roxie Hart in the show, and she received support from some of her 'Vanderpump Rules' co-stars, including Lala Kent and Scheana Shay.

Ariana's mom, Tanya, and Daniel Wai - the TV star's boyfriend - were also sat among the audience, according to PEOPLE.

Ariana studied musical theatre at Flagler College in Florida and she received a standing ovation from the audience after her Broadway debut.

The reality star previously admitted that she was fulfilling a life-long dream by treading the boards in the Big Apple.

Speaking ahead of her Broadway debut, she told PEOPLE: "To say this is a fulfilment of a life-long dream would be an understatement.

"This is quite literally everything to me. It's all I've ever wanted. And to be here now, having this full-circle moment ... I feel so beyond grateful."

Ariana acknowledged that some people will always question her credentials as a performer.

However, the actress is determined to prove her doubters wrong.

Ariana - who also appeared on 'Dancing with the Stars' last year - explained: "I'm keenly aware what brought me here, but I don't want that to be what people think about when they leave the theatre.

"As cool as it is, it's very 'Hamilton' for me: I cannot throw away my shot. When I go out there, I really want people to say, 'She belongs here.' I don't want people to say, 'Oh, she got cast because of whatever and nothing else'.

"I'm here to prove to people that I deserve my opportunity."
