Usher To Make Broadway Debut

On August 22, Usher will make his debut in the musical “Chicago,” taking over the role of Billy Flynn previously played by the Oscar-winner Richard Gere. The Confessions singer has performed for millions of screaming fans on stages, but he’s never been on a stage like this. “This is a very exciting time in my career,” Usher said Friday (July 14) in a statement. “I have always admired Broadway actors for their showmanship, dedication and focus that goes into performing live onstage every night. Being on Broadway allows you to connect to audiences in a whole new way that’s different from music and movies. When they asked me to play Billy Flynn in ‘Chicago,’ I jumped at the chance to be a part of such an amazing production.” Usher’s Broadway stint ends October 1. His main producer, Jermaine Dupri, recently stated that the singer is already thinking about his next album and should begin recording before year end. Preview/Buy Tickets
