America Ferrera: West End Girl

Emmy-winning actress America Ferrera will be hitting London’s West End next month to show off her singing pipes…

According to Entertainment Weekly, the 27-year-old Honduran-American actress will join the London cast of “Chicago.” She’ll play the scene-stealing role of Roxie Hart in the long-running musical.

The former “Ugly Betty” star’s eight-week stint begins on November 7.

Following her London West End debut, Ferrera will make her Broadway debut in a revival of Beth Henley’s 984 play, “The Miss Firecracker Contest,” the story of a Mississippi woman entering a beauty pageant.

Ferrera will begin rehearsals for the production in March; the play is set to premiere next spring.
