R&B starlet Brandy is getting ready to storm Broadway for the first time, starring as Roxie Hart in CHICAGO.
Kicking off on April 28 the award winning singer/actress will play an 8-week limited engagement at the Ambassador Theatre in NYC through Sunday, June 21.
Hot 97 was recently invited to an private rehearsal for certain members of the press and was allowed to share a few minutes of various routines. Looking every bit ready for the part, Brandy ran through song and dance numbers from the show, and talked about preparing for the rigorous performance.
“One of the most challenging things was [just] deciding to do it,” she says. “8 shows a week, so to make that decision and make that kind of commitment was really scary, but I said, ‘God put it in front of me, it must be meant for me to do’.”
In addition to her upcoming role, Brandy revealed that she would like Keke Palmer to play her if a biopic was every going to come out, and if she had to choose an actor to be her love interest in CHICAGO it would be Michael B. Jordan.
