D'Amboise made her Broadway debut in the musical Cats in 1983 as Cassandra, where she met her future husband, performer Terrence Mann. She also performed in the role of Chris Hargensen in the ill-fated 1988 musical Carrie. She frequently has played the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago, first heading the 1997 national tour and later joining the Broadway revival cast in 1999.

In early 2005, d'Amboise replaced Christina Applegate in the Boston leg of the pre-Broadway tour of the revival of Sweet Charity, as well as the first few weeks of previews on Broadway, following a foot injury sustained by Applegate that nearly cancelled the production. Once Applegate returned to the role in New York, d'Amboise remained as her standby while simultaneously performing the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago.
