November 17, 2009|Associated Press

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is ready to show some razzle-dazzle on Broadway.

The pop singer, who was recently booted from "Melrose Place," is set to play Roxie Hart in the long-running musical revival of "Chicago."

Producer Barry Weissler says Simpson-Wentz will join the production on Nov. 30 for a 10-week engagement ending in early February. The performer played Roxie in the London production of "Chicago" in 2006.

Among her bestselling singles are such songs as "Pieces of Me," "Boyfriend" and "L.O.V.E." She is married to musician Pete Wentz.
