Mel B, also known to audiences worldwide as the iconic “Scary Spice” of the Spice Girls, is a chart-topping music artist, actress, author, TV host and entrepreneur. One of the busiest working moms in the entertainment industry, she’s currently starring on hit TV shows on three different continents: in the US as a judge on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent;” in the UK as host of “Lip Sync Battle UK;” and in Australia as a guest judge on “The X Factor.” She is an accomplished author with her bestselling autobiography Catch a Fire. Also a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, Mel B has partnered with the group behind Serafina restaurants to spearhead their West Coast expansion of 6 locations with the first having launched this past fall in Los Angeles.
Chicago currently stars Disney Channel star Veronica Dunne as Roxie Hart (thru 11/27), Lana Gordon as Velma Kelly, Paul Alexander Nolan as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Matron “Mama” Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine. With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, Chicago is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, Chicago is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.

An original pop album from Broadway superstar Idina Menzel is due in a few weeks and we just can’t “let it go”! Idina is stepping away from the world of showtunes for her latest album.

Idina herself has promised that the self-titled recording is the “the most personal, introspective album she’s ever made”. The 12 tracks, such as “Queen of Swords” and “I See You”, will focus on love, relationships, and making your own path.
The album will be released worldwide on September 23rd (the same day as fellow Wicked diva Kristin Chenoweth’s new recording).
