He swayed the ends slightly as he walked, letting him rock his tight dancer’s legs as he pounded the pavement on his way to the Ambassador Theatre.
Movers and shakers: Pamela Anderson shines when she returns to Broadway this Thursday for the third night of her run in Chicago’s smash hit revival
Pamela walks past the Majestic Theatre, which is home to The Phantom Of The Opera, the only musical on Broadway that has run longer than its shows.
Just two nights earlier she had made her Chicago debut, where she would be playing a limited eight weeks in the lead role of Roxie Hart.
After receiving a bouquet of roses during a curtain call, she headed backstage and posed with her sons Brandon Thomas Lee, 25, and Dylan Jagger Lee, 24.
Her two sons, whom she shares with her ex-husband and sextape co-star Tommy Lee, dressed in nine for their mother’s Broadway opening.

Bowing, he also approaches his co-star Lana Gordon, who plays the lead role of Roxie, Velma Kelly.
Pamela received a rousing audience reaction on her first night, according to the New York Post, which critic Johnny Oleksinski called ‘so funny’ in that part.
‘The excited audience would sometimes stomp on the laughter with their applause, which isn’t the worst case,’ the review noted.
He also said he sings ‘just fine’ and is able to do the final tricky choreography, including the cartwheel.

When Pamela entered the Chicago cast, she joined a long line of celebrities to play the lead role of Roxie Hart in the current renaissance.
The original production, directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse, had only moderate success in the 1970s despite being helmed by Gwen Verdon and Chita Rivera.
But the show was revived in 1996, directed and choreographed by ex-boyfriend Bob Ann Reinking ‘in the style of Bob Fosse,’ and became a huge success.
This revival has become the second longest-serving Broadway musical of all time, surpassed only by The Phantom Of The Opera.
Stepping on the board: Just two nights before she made her Chicago debut, where she’ll be playing a limited eight weeks in the lead role of Roxie Hart.
Celebrities galore have been in and out of the show, with Roxie herself being played by a dizzying array of names including Brooke Shields, Ashlee Simpson, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Christie Brinkley and Melanie Griffith.
Pamela recently revealed on Good Morning America that the upcoming Netflix documentary series will cover some of her preparations for Chicago.
A month ago he stated on his Instagram page that he would be telling the ‘true story’ of his life with the Netflix project.
The announcement came after a swirl of reports claiming he was upset with the fictional Hulu miniseries Pam And Tommy.

Lily James and Sebastian Stan star on the show as Pamela and her first husband Tommy Lee of Motley Crue fame.
Directed by Craig Gillespie of I, Tonya, the series focuses on the theft and release of the infamous sex tape of Pam and Tommy in 1995.
Although I, Tonya is based largely on interviews with its subject Tonya Harding and her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, Pam And Tommy was created without input from the real-life celebrities whose stories are told.
Who’s who: Bowing, he also approaches his co-star Lana Gordon, who plays the lead role of Roxie, Velma Kelly.
An Entertainment Tonight source claimed prior to the show’s release that the project was ‘deeply painful for Pamela Anderson and for anyone who loves her. It’s shocking that this series was allowed to happen without his consent.’
Insiders said Pamela ‘felt so violated to this day’ by the sex tape robbery and said the show ‘turned back a very painful time for her.
Pamela’s friend Courtney Love denounced the show as ‘vile’ and ‘outrageous’, writing on social media: ‘My heart goes out to Pammy further causing her complex trauma.’

She set aside a few choice words for the show’s leading lady, adding: ‘And shame on Lily James whoever she is.’
Pamela told CNN in a recent interview that her turn in Chicago ‘feels like one step closer to taking back my power and actually taking it back.’
The Baywatch icon added: ‘It’s so empowering. And I feel supported. I’m rooting, it’s a new feeling for me. I don’t want to disappoint anyone, but I really don’t want to disappoint myself either.’
