Rumer Willis had originally been due to take over the role of Roxie Hart in August (15), but had to push her start date back twice as she recovered from a stress fracture in her foot.

The 27 year old finally took to the stage on Monday and her proud parents, who divorced in 2000, were in the audience to see her perform, along with her sisters Tallulah and Scout.

She won a standing ovation as the curtain came down.

After the show, Bruce Willis' wife Emma Heming snapped a picture of the couple with Rumer and posted it on with the caption: "Beaming with pride! Still buzzing from her performance... You never fail to amaze us #RumerIsRoxie... (sic)"

Scout Willis also shared a snap of herself standing outside the theatre with Rumer and Tallulah.
