Brandy Takes To Broadway
Grammy-winning R&B singer Brandy celebrated her opening night yesterday at the Ambassador Theater as Roxie Hart in Chicago.
Chicago tells the story of Roxie Hart, a nightclub dancer who gets away with murder by duping the public and media, with help from the most prominent lawyer in town, Billy Flynn. Hart confides in cellmate Velma Kelly and together, they dream of getting out of prison and becoming stars on the big stage.
The musical has featured a number of celebrities. Wendy Williams made her Broadway debut in the musical as Mama Morton two years ago and Michelle Williams took on the role as Roxie Hart back in 2011. Queen Latifah played Mama Morton in the film adaption that came out in 2002.
The current Broadway cast includes Amra-Faye Wright as Velma, John Dossett as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron “Mama” Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
Brandy will be performing with the cast on Broadway until June 21st. Click here for pricing and show times.
