Ashlee Rox West End

Ashlee Simpson made her debut last night in the musical Chicago at the Cambridge Theatre. According to reports, she pulled off a flawless performance in the role of femme fatale Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger in the film verson). Ashlee said, “The play absolutely is all about celebrity and wanting to be famous and have your name in the papers. In that sense, it’s been kind of cool because I’ve really got to connect to that because I’ve seen that world and been in that world… Doing theatre has been extremely humbling because it’s not about who you are. You are not a celebrity when you come here. Everyone is equal – everyone has to work together.” The muscal number that riled up the crowd the most was “Roxie” because Ashlee poked fun at the nose job talk in tabloids. Lyrics as follows:

The name on everybody’s lips
Is gonna be Roxie
The lady raking in the chips
Is gonna be Roxie

I’m gonna be a celebrity
That means
Somebody everyone knows
They’re gonna recognize my eyes
My hair my teeth my boobs my nose
