Angelica Ross is taking her talents to Broadway. According to Broadway, the Pose star has landed the role of Roxie Hart in the theater adaptation of Chicago. The drama will run at the Ambassador Theatre on September 12 and will run until November 6.
Ross becomes the first openly transgender woman to play a leading role in a Broadway production with her debut role.
The multi-hyphenate talent has not only made her mark on television with the once-popular FX television series. Ross is a producer, singer-songwriter, LGBTQ organizer, and activist.
Ross told Inc. sharing life lessons that people are constantly looking outside of themselves for definitions, for blame, for support. I have discovered that looking outside of yourself is a harmful strategy to live this thing called life.
She added, I have started to reject the scoreboard of bank account balances and credit scores, which are supposed to be used to evaluate my worth.
