Kara DioGuardi sure loves her music as she went from American Idol to Platinum Hit, but the singer/songwriter is not stopping anytime soon. In fact, it has just been revealed that Kara DioGuardi will be heading to Broadway – to star in the hit musical “Chicago” as Roxie Hart.
Kara DioGuardi will star in the Broadway production “Chicago” starting September 5th for eight weeks. So how did this come about? Kara says: “They called me, and I auditioned. The dancing is a problem for me, because I’m not a trained dancer. Now I’ve got my hips moving ways they never moved.It’s a great new challenge. Idol opened all these doors for me, and what it did more than anything was face my stage fright.”
“Chicago” debuted on Broadway in 1966 and is the longest running Broadway production in history. Kara DioGuardi will join the list of other stars who have played the role of Roxie including Christie Brinkley, Brooke Shields, Sandy Duncan, Michelle Williams and Melanie Griffith.
