After a successful run as Roxie Hart on the London stage, Ashlee Simpson may be returning to NYC to star in the Broadway musical Chicago. Broadway spokesperson Jeremy Shaffer said he could not confirm Ash's return to the stage, but did confirm that Dancing With the Stars' celeb Cheryl Burke will not be starring as Roxie. This is a role near-and-dear to Ashlee, who surprised many London theatergoers when she took over the role of Roxie for a five-week run in the fall of 2006.

Ashlee recently left Melrose Place after her storyline was wrapped up. Perfect-timing for a jaunt on Broadway!

As for whether or not she’d be willing to revisit the part of Roxie, Ashlee told OK! last year, "It’s a lot of hard work and it’s a great, fantastic show and I would love to do it again."
