In Chicago: The Musical, Velma was known as some Vaudeville actress/dancer, until she fainted from seeing her sister and husband having an affair. Velma "woke up" with her hands covered in their blood, and denied that she killed them. She was made famous by the media, until Roxie Hart usurped the fame, and made Velma a has-been.

Actresses who made this role famous were Bebe Neuwirth (Broadway cast) and Ute Lemper (Broadway, London, and Las Vegas).
