Where does a crazy Melrose Place character go after she dies? Apparently, the Windy City by way of the Great White Way.

According to reports, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, 25, isn't taking a break after getting axed from the prime-time soap. Instead, she's set to play Roxie Hart in the Broadway production of Chicago, starting in December for six weeks, Gossip Cop reports.

It's not an unfamiliar role. Simpson-Wentz played the role in the London run of the musical. It would, however, be her Broadway debut.
