Let me guess. You have no idea what the title of my blog means do you? Now of course you recognize the name Roxie Hart right? Why it's the merry murderess from the long running musical Chicago of course. Now for those of you that don't know who Betty Suarez is she is the title character from the dearly departed and one of my favorite television shows "Ugly Betty". Still don't know what I'm talking about do you? That's o.k. I know I can be a bit confusing at times.Yesterday it was announced that Emmy winner America Ferrera is set to join the London production of Chicago for eight weeks beginning on November 7.
It was also announced that Ms. Ferrera will return to the stage in the Spring. However this time she will play the Great White Way in a revival of Miss Firecracker Contest by Beth Henley. The show which launched the career of Academy and Emmy winner Holly Hunter debuted Off-Broadway in 1984. This new production to be directed by two-time Tony winner Judith Ivey is set to begin rehearsals in March 2012. I for one can't wait as I have had admired Ms. Ferrera for years now. Besides being a brilliant actress she is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.
