Singer Michelle Williams to Star in Broadway's Chicago
The former Destiny's Child member will take over Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's role in the hit musical
Former Destiny’s Child star Michelle Williams will see her name in lights next month when she high-kicks her way into the starring role of Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway.
Williams, 29, will play the wannabe star-turned-murderess for a limited run in the hit musical from Feb. 8 to March 28.
Williams first played Roxie last year in London’s West End production.
Williams, who won three Grammy Awards while she was with Destiny s Child, has since released three solo albums and in 2003 made her Broadway debut in Aida, replacing fellow singer Toni Braxton. She also performed in the national tour of The Color Purple.
