London (ANI): Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is all set to make her Broadway debut as she reprises the role of Roxie Hart in 'Chicago", it has emerged. According to GossipCop.com, the 25-year-old singer-turned-actress, who played the character in London's West End in 2006, will begin her six-week Broadway stint next month, reports the Daily Star.
The news comes after Ashlee was axed from the American TV show Melrose Place last month. An insider had recently revealed that Ashlee had made up her mind to hang up her mic and focus on her acting career for the sake of her 11-month-old son, Bronx.
"She's reading scripts. Acting is her focus now. If she had an album, she'd have to tour and be away from Bronx. She wants consistency," Contactmusic had quoted the source, as saying.
