Ashlee Simpson makes jazzy Broadway debut

Tuesday December 1, 2009

Singer and actress Ashlee Simpson-Wentz returned to the stage on Monday night, once again stepping into the sexy heels of Chicago murderess Roxie Hart, who she first portrayed in London's West End in 2006.

“I’m honored to be reprising my role as Roxie Hart, returning to the stage and joining this amazing cast," she recently said.

"Being on Broadway is a childhood dream come true.”

And the actress has already received at least one rave review.

Her big sister Jessica, who showed up in support along with Ashlee's husband Pete Wentz, posted praise on her Twitter page.

She wrote, "Roxie was all Heart! Watching her up on that grandiose stage made me the proudest sister in the world."
