'Chicago,' the Tony Award-winning musical now in its 19th year at the Ambassador Theater, has pulled a coup and booked Grammy Award-winner Brandy Norwood in her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart. Beginning Tuesday, April 28, 2015, Norwood will star in an eight-week limited run there at the Ambassador through Sunday, June 21, 2015. A true triple-threat as a singer, songwriter and actress, at last count, "Brandy" has sold some 40 million albums worldwide. In fact, her dueling duet with Monica, “The Boy Is Mine,” remains the best-selling duo tune of all time. (And who could forget her historic role as the first African-American princess in Disney’s made-for-TV Cinderella, alongside the late Whitney Houston?)
Lyric Theater, LLC has purchased Foxwoods Theater, the current home of the Spider-Man musical, from Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. the companies said on Monday.
