Ashlee 'Crazy Eyes' Simpson-Wentz debuts on Broadway in 'Chicago'
Give 'em the old razzle-dazzle, Crazy Eyes. Razzle dazzle 'em.
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz made her Broadway debut this week as murderous showgirl Roxie Hart. The reviews so far have been *GASP* positive, though to be fair, many of them came from her family.
Hollywood Life says:
Watching Ashlee act on stage was like watching a 1920s cartoon character come to life! Part Betty Boop, part Olive Oil, Ashlee had the audience in stitches with every goofy face and whip-smart zinger. Her performance was basically the flipside of how Renee Zellweger portrayed criminal-of-passion Roxie Hart in the 2002 film version of Chicago -- and we loved her all the more for it!
While Jessica Simpson's Twitter account says:
Roxie was all Heart!Watching her up on that grandiose stage made me the proudest sister in the world. I love ya honey, I love ya!. Grrrrrrr ... Night #2 :) I'm so proud!! Butterflies all over again!!!Papa Joe told People:
We're going to be here. We're going to be seeing our baby on Broadway. That's where we'll be ... She's here 'til Feb. 8. She does eight shows a week. She's going to be here working, and that's a great place to be.We're glad to see Ashlee getting good reviews on Broadway, since right now we're totally grossed out by her sexual-relationship-with-adopted-brother "Melrose Place" storyline.
