Velma sincerely thanks the audience during “Nowadays.” According to Ross, Velma changes significantly over the show. “[Velma] realizes if they’re going to survive, they need to trust Roxie, which is going to be extraordinarily hard for them,” Ross said. “Velma is someone who hides their secrets and emotions, and trusting someone is going to be a first for them.”
