Talk show host JERRY SPRINGER is set to show off his dancing skills on Broadway after signing on to play BILLY FLYNN in hit musical CHICAGO.
The TV host will tackle tunes like Razzle Dazzle when he takes on the legal role from Tuesday night (18Aug09) after wowing West End audiences as Flynn.
Springer was a big success during his six-week run there, and now he has returned home for a three-week stint in New York, before heading off on tour with the production through September (09).
Springer made his West End stage debut starring as Flynn at the Cambridge Theatre on 1 June (09).
Ironically, Springer was a lawyer before he became the mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio - and then a TV star. (KL/WNWC/IG)
