Ashlee Simpson To Hit Broadway's Chicago

Ashlee Simpson is in talks to return to the musical Chicago on Broadway, sources tell

The 25-year-old actress moved back to New York City earlier this week. “She plans on being here for three months,” a source reveals. “She’s hoping to return to the stage.” (Ashlee played the femme fatale Roxie Hart in Chicago at London’s West End in 2006.)

Ashlee recently moved out of Melrose Place after producers wrapped up her storyline.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Ashlee hit the Broadway stage — YAY or NAY?

    No because she suck

    NY is no London

  • Trixy

    who cares?

  • Jordasche Bledsoe

    Totally agree with Marissa above. She should really stop setting herself up for disappointments. This is her family’s fault for not being honest with her and making her think she is a great singer and actress which couldn’t be further from the truth.

  • Jay

    I love ashlee!!

  • lexy

    Does this talentless idiot think someone’s going to pay over $100 to see her perform live?? Her and Papa Joe need to stop smoking that crack!

  • Mike Miller

    But… she can’t sing (see lip-synching debacle on SNL) or act (see getting fired from Melrose Place)… can she dance?

  • ck

    What the hell did we do to deserve this no-talent invading our city again?
    Ugh…there goes the real estate values :(

  • Gaga

    Can she even sing?

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    some people just don’t know when to quit. she fails nonstop but refuses to save herself the embarrassment.

  • liza

    wow they put anyone in broadwaynow a days

  • waffle bowl

    Funny how people constantly criticize Ashlee because of ONE incident in which she was caught lip-syncing, yet people still pay top money to go see Britney Spears even though she lip-syncs ALL THE TIME.

  • Paulie

    That poster actually calls her “America’s sweetheart”?!? Um, no. ROFLMAO.

  • **JAMIE**

  • In The Know

    Why don’t they just stop kicking this dead horse……she has no talent.
    I seriously doubt any viable Broadway producer will cast this non-talent.

  • ace11a

    there is no hate here silly,

    people are just commenting to her no talent…..

    like it or not,


    I think this is really an awesome picture of her. LOVE IT. She looks really hot here.

  • Down with the simpsons

    America’s sweetheart? LMAO! Give it up Ashlee! Her PR team will do anything to keep her in the press. Melrose Place gave her the boot. How low can you go?

  • yaya


    yaya, gaga, she can sing.

  • xxx

    When is this girl going to get it?
    Ashlee sweetie, you’ve NEVER had a number 1 single after… what is it three albums? You’re last song “Little Miss Obsessive” made it to number 96 in the charts in America. Just GIVE UP SINGING. You cannot sing,..

    then don’t even get me started on the so called “acting.”

    Go and work at McDonalds or something because you’re not talented.

  • melissa asherman

    I’d see that!

  • Bree

    She can’t act ! Have you watched her on Melrose Place?
    She is horrible

  • chef de Vestes de Cuisine

    I’ve got a stage that she’s more than welcome to gat on ant time she wants!

  • Vagabond

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks a bit like Angelina on this photo…?
    When I saw the photo I thought it was Angelina…. it looks very little like Ashlee… Probably there was a bit too much Photoshop intervention

  • Nene4355

    Some people are just pathetic. Don’t you see that she was planning all this for 3 months? it’s hard to think that maybe she left Melrose Place and not that she was fired? SERIOUSLY. You guys are not really smart. And that’s the difference btw ashlee and you she will be always in the top spot because she knows how to handle with her failures. Anyway if she did great in London and once in NYC she can do it again.

  • lakers fan in boston

    wow, looks like she’s gonna ruin a musical
    what else is on her list of ruining?
    she’s ruined music, acting, i guess she’s just trying show what a complete failure she is

  • Stone

    Why doesn’t she just give us all a break by herself a break.

  • nat

    Its not a good idea. She is not an actress, nor a singer. Her music career is on the drain, and she is the worst actress I had ever seen. She should stick to being a mother.

  • Anne

    Definitely Nay and another thing those of us in Chicago need to DEMAND Chicago Talent on our Chicago Stages. I am tired of not seeing Chicago Talent. We have talent right her in Chicago!

    If you want to move here and perform great, but why can’t we expect to see our great city with Chicago Talent.

  • Darby

    I don’t know why people are so insistent she’ll fail on Broadway. She did the role on the West-End to RAVE reviews and London is a way harder audience to impress than America. She is a trained dancer and has a decent voice. I believe she’ll do well on Broadway.

  • Mona

    She cant ACT! Why cant they see that! Why would I want to waste money on her?

  • Ann

    she looks like has 16 years old on the show Melrose Place
    YAY I thing she is a great actress

  • katkat

    Is it me or does she look like Jessica Alba in that poster?
