America Ferrera Makes Broadway Debut As Roxie Hart In ‘Chicago’ (PHOTOS)

Celebs Gone Broadway
Who left the big screen for the stage?
We may have been introduced to her as Ugly Betty,  but actress America Ferrera is showing us some sex appeal these days. Gone are the thick eyebrows and braces that we loved from the hit show. The actress made her West End debut on the opening night of the musical theatre production of Chicago on Monday (Nov.7) in London.

Showing plenty of leg and flashing that trademark smile, the former TV star, 27, is making the transition she’s always dreamed of. She tells the Associated Press:

“For me, I grew up doing theater and working on the stage, and I grew up a huge fan of musical theater and of the show ‘Chicago’ so, it’s very exciting all around.”

The young actress is the latest U.S. star to play the iconic role of Roxie Hart in the London broadway musical. She joins a list that includes model Christie Brinkley, Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams and pop star Ashlee Simpson.
