Broadway is back — and all that jazz.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams made a surprise appearance at the Ambassador Theater Tuesday night for the 25th anniversary of the hit musical “Chicago” — part of a push to pump up Big Apple tourism as COVID-19 restrictions begin to wane.

Adams’ pop-up speech during intermission came after he taped an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to promote Broadway and the city.

Audience members at the CBS taping were all given a “goodie bag” that included tickets to “Chicago,” where Adams is also meeting backstage with the cast.

Adams' surprise visit was part of an effort to promote New York City tourism — including the reopening of Broadway shows.

The mayor-elect walked the two blocks from the Colbert studio to the theater.

Adams’ Broadway stunt is part of a push by city officials to get tourists to The Great White Way — and the rest of the city after nearly two years of pandemic restrictions.

Earlier this month, the New York City Marathon returned to the five boroughs, as the city’s famed restaurants are banking on a revival as out-of-towners return to Midtown — albeit with lingering COVID restrictions.
