Look out, Broadway — here comes Ashlee Simpson!
Now that she’s been served her eviction notice from “Melrose Place,” Ashlee Simpson is headed to Broadway to star as murderous showgirl Roxie Hart in “Chicago.” Simpson previously played the role in 2006 in London, to good reviews.
According to Gossip Cop, Simpson will begin her run in December and appear for six weeks. The show’s producers, Fran and Barry Weissler, loved her performance in England and wanted her to reprise the role.
Well… color us stunned. Frankly, we think the Tony-winning “Chicago” is a better gig than “Melrose Place,” so we guess Ashlee Simpson is having the last laugh. We wonder what sister Jessica has to say about this? So far her Twitter is quiet.
