The country singer, who is best known as the lead vocalist of Sugarland, has previously appeared on Broadway in Chicago and she did the musical Mamma Mia at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

“It’s a character I love, a show I love, and a community I love,” Erich told THR. “The only thing better than seeing a Broadway show is being in one, and as a theatre kid who grew up in New York City, to be a part of Broadway’s reopening means more to me than you can imagine.”
