Brandy Brings Her Chicago Run To A Close – Final Week!

“So long, farewell to you my friend. Goodbye for now until we meet again.” In the words of Out of The Box, it is almost time to bid farewell to one of our favorite Broadway Black stars Brandy Norwood, as her run as “Roxie Hart” in Chicago comes to a close this weekend. If you have yet to make your way to the Ambassador Theatre to see her, clear your schedule and make time for it because it’s a performance you wont want to miss.

I was fortunate enough to see the show last week and can genuinely say it was such a treat to watch her in action. She brings her own flare to “Roxie” that is so uniquely Brandy and is so fitting for the character. Those runs? I see you Brandy. I see you. She’ll make you laugh, she’ll make you cry, but most importantly she’ll make you root for a character that can be questionably unethical. To me, that’s what a really good performance is supposed to do.

Brandy started her run as “Roxie Hart” April 28 and originally was supposed to end her run June 21, however due to rave reviews and popular demand her run was extended until August 2nd. Chicago marks Brandy’s Broadway debut — though it isn’t her first musical. She starred opposite Whitney Houston in the 1997 TV adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. But make no mistake, we doubt that this will be Brandy’s last time on the Great White Way, in fact she even said so herself in her exclusive interview with Broadway Black that she would love to come back to Broadway as “Annie Oakley” in Annie Get Your Gun (Come on Broadway producers! Let’s make this happen!).
