Former Destiny's Child star Michelle Williams will see her name in lights next month when she high-kicks her way into the starring role of Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway.
Williams, 29, will play the wannabe star-turned-murderess for a limited run in the hit musical from Feb. 8 to March 28.
Williams will be taking over from Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who debuted in the revival on Dec. 1. (A winner of six Tonys, this production of Chicago has been running on Broadway for 13 years.)
Williams first played Roxie last year in London's West End production.

Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams says her dating life is "so unfortunate."
"I haven't had any luck this year," she told PEOPLE Thursday night at a benefit for the Jazz Foundation of America at the famed Apollo Theater in New York City. "It's been a couple years since I've been in a really serious relationship. Every now and then, you might think you're coming up on a winner, and then it doesn't work out."
But in truth, Williams hasn't had much time for the singles scene. She's been hard at work on her first solo R&B album Unexpected, which will hit stores in August. (Click here to hear her first single "We Break the Dawn.") Still, the 27-year-old singer finds herself second-guessing her focus.

For Michelle Williams Unexpected isn't just the name of her upcoming album – her new look is enough to make fans glance twice.
The singer recently debuted a trendy shoulder-length cut and side-swept bangs, a fresh update on the long locks of her gospel days. "I figured I have to do unexpected things," she said on Thursday at a private listening party for her new music.
On the topic of the edgy style – hot pink heels and skinny pants – she's sporting in the latest promo photos, she added, "It's very much how I am at home. You know, jeans and a tank top."

It's a hot new look – and new sound – for former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams, and PEOPLE has your exclusive first listen to "We Break the Dawn," the synth-heavy first single from her album, Unexpected, due in August. (Click play below to hear it, then check out the singer's official Web site michellewilliamsonline.com for more info.)
It's a big new step for Williams, whose previous two albums focused more on her gospel roots – and it has the pop seal of approval from Mathew Knowles (aka Beyoncé's father), who's releasing the disc through Music World Entertainment/Columbia Records.
