Grammy-winning singer, Brandy is making her Broadway debut in the record breaking hit musical, “Chicago.” The acclaimed actress and reality-star will play the role of Roxie Hart beginning Tuesday, April 28, 2015 and will play an 8-week limited engagement at the Ambassador Theatre through June 21, 2015.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, “Chicago” is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
Brandy is an NAACP Image Award winner for her role as Chardonnay on “BET’s The Game” and has also starred in her own sitcom, “Moesha.” She was also Disney’s first black princess in the television film “Cinderella,” alongside her idol, Whitney Houston.
