Ricky Martin heading to Broadway
Ricky Martin will put down his mic for a highly coveted role on Broadway, he has confirmed.
The 'She Bangs' singer is set to star as 'Che' in the revival of the well-loved musical, Evita. Michael Grandage will direct the show, which is expected to premiere in the spring of 2012.
Martin, 39, issued an official statement on the exciting news:
"I've been blessed with the opportunity to perform on many of the world's largest concert stages, but I've never lost my love for the intimacy of the theater. I'm delighted to know that after I've had the chance to share new music and tour over the coming year, that I will then return once again to Broadway. I'm looking forward to playing such an essential part in Michael Grandage's wonderful production and the chance to work with the tremendously talented Elena Roger."
