The Paley Center for Media proudly presents the World Premiere of BET’s ambitious three-part miniseries The New Edition Story. R&B supergroup New Edition helped establish the foundation for how modern-day boy bands look, feel, and sound. Boyz II Men, N’SYNC, The Backstreet Boys, and New Kids On The Block all took their cues from group members Ronnie DeVoe, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, and Johnny Gill. After three decades, the group’s stellar tenure in entertainment is celebrated in a three-part miniseries which follows them from their humble beginnings as kids in Boston to global megastardom—weathering the highs and lows of controversy, personnel changes, and the often high cost of fame. Executive produced by Jesse Collins (Real Husbands of Hollywood) in conjunction with Bell, Bivins, DeVoe, Gill, Tresvant, and Brown, The New Edition Story will air as a six-hour, three-night event on January 24 to 26, 2017, at 9:00 pm ET/PT on BET.

Am so excited that Brandy is going to play Roxie Hart at the Pantages! I can’t believe the little girl who sang ‘I wanna be down’ is down for this sexy Broadway tour! I’m sure that her voice will add a new dimension to Roxie.
I might have to read the book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse and of course I already know the music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb.
It’s exciting to see CHICAGO here at that Pantages it’s #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
The show will be at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre from April 26 – May 1, 2016 so make sure you take advantage of the pre-sale for this Broadway record-breaking, Tony Award-Winning Musical straight from the great white way. Producers Barry and Fran Weissler and the Nederlander organization has Grammy Award-Winner Brandy Norwood as Roxie Hart as they welcome Chicago the Musical back to the Hollywood Pantages.
It’s exciting that Brandy Norwood who made her Broadway debut as “Roxie Hart” from April 28th through August 2nd 2015 in a limited run on Broadway. I met Brandy with her multi-platinum self-titled debut album and got to know her as the star of ‘Moesha’. She made history starring in Disney’s Cinderella as its first black princess with Whitney Houston. Not that she’s rested on her laurels she’s been putting out music and starring in TV shows with winning at 2014 NAACP Image Award playing Chardonnay on BET’s ‘The Game’.
Her next project is a new series called ‘Zoe Ever After’ on BET where she plays Zoe Moon (Norwood). It’s a comedy that focuses on Zoe as she navigates life as a divorcee from a famous boxer as she forges a new path of dating, being a single mom and being the ‘boss’ of her own cosmetic line!

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 maliciously 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.
The national tour is directed by David Hyslop and choreographed by David Bushman. Walter Bobbie is the director of the original New York Production and Ann Reinking was the original choreographer in the style of Bob Fosse. CHICAGO features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer. The production also features orchestrations by Ralph Burns, supervising music direction by Rob Fisher.
The performance schedule for CHICAGO is Tuesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm & 8pm and Sunday at 1pm & 6:30pm. Opening Night is Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 8pm.
CHICAGO is recommended for ages 13 and up. (Children under 5 will not be admitted to the theatre. All patrons must have a ticket, regardless of age.)
