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.

    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.

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

    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.

    I seriously doubt any viable Broadway producer will cast this non-talent.

    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?

    xxx Says:

    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.

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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

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

    nat Says:

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    Ashley has a good voice and she can dance! She will do really good! Unlike Jessica – Ashley had to work for everything – couldn’t live off her looks.

    Bree Says:


    it’s not really how it should be, but sadly Roxie is one of those parts where you can get away with casting a desperate talentless hack with grandiose dreams of stardom – hence why they’ve been doing it for years

    She’s a Simpson family member. What do you expect?

    lyn Says:

    She sucks as an actress and I think one of the worst hence melrose with her creepy looks, but is a little better with singing.

    Lover9072 Says:

    @Filbert: She is talented! Have you ever listened to her songs? Well, I really didn’t think so. If you had listened to them, you would never have said what you’ve said. Many people out there love her and her music and think she’s amazing. She had an incredible success when she played Roxie Hart in 2006. She was simply stunning!
    So show some respect for this at least.
