    10 Ways to be Heart-Smart This National Heart Month

    After just a little over a month of giving Broadway audiences "all that jazz" in "Chicago," Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is exiting the revival and singer Michelle Williams is reportedly stepping in.

    According to People, the former Destiny's Child star will strut her stuff in the role of Roxie Hart on the Great White way.

    The 29-year-old singer will reportedly play the singing murderess for a limited run from February 8 to March 28.

    This isn't the first time Michelle has starred in the popular musical. She first played Roxie in 2009 in London's West End production. She has also started in "Aida" on Broadway and also performed in the national tour of "The Color Purple."
