All That Lifeless Jazz
Video of Ashlee Simpson practicing for her debut as Roxie Hart in the London production of “Chicago” has emerged on TMZ. She’s not horrendous, but she definitely needs a little more oomph if she’s going to pull off Bob Fosse moves and deliver Broadway caliber vocal chops. I can’t see her holding those longer high notes (“Who says that murder’s not an aaaaaaaaart?!”) She was also interviewed, where she once again refused to talk about her alleged nose job – right after she’d sang the line about people recognizing Roxie for her nose (and lips, and boobs, of course).
Check out video of Amy Spanger as Roxie on Broadway.
