Usher to make Broadway debut in 'Chicago'.
R&B crooner Usher is about to make his Broadway debut. The five-time Grammy winning singer has been tapped to take over the role of conniving lawyer Billy Flynn in the long-running musical revival "Chicago".
"I have always admired Broadway actors for their showmanship, dedication and focus that goes into performing live on stage every night," Usher said in a statement. "Being on Broadway allows you to connect to audiences in a whole new way that's different from music and movies."
Usher opens Aug. 22 in "Chicago" and will appear through Oct. 1. You better not miss his performance anyway.
