Producers Barry and Fran Weissler and the Nederlander Organization have just announced that GRAMMY Award-Winner Brandy Norwood will revisit the role of “Roxie Hart” when CHICAGO THE MUSICAL returns to Los Angeles at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre. Brandy will play a limited one-week engagement from April 26 – May 1, 2016, but we all know that can easily be extended once B.Roca takes the wheel.

You’ve likely never heard a Roxie Hart riff like this before!” FACT! “Any way you put it, BRANDY’S CAREER IS ICONIC. She adds to all that as Roxie Hart in Chicago.” – BuzzFeed Another FACT, and now her West Coast fans can finally share a dose in what the critics have been raving about.
In the meantime, lets revisit Brandy’s first televised performance of ‘Roxie’ on The Wendy Williams Show! “How Yew Dewin!’
