Usher To Return To Broadway In Golden Boy
R+B star Usher has been lined up to star in a Broadway revival of classical play GOLDEN BOY. The singer proved he can cut it on the New York stage playing Billy Flynn in 2006, and he is now in talks to take on the role made famous by Sammy Davis Jr. in the 1960s - about a pianist who quits music to become a boxer. Composer Charles Strouse tells the New York Post, "I can't tell you the contract have been signed yet, but Usher's interest in the show is real. He's a rare talent. He moves so well, and he's a terrific singer. I would be the most flattered guy in the world if he does the show."
