Kara DioGuardi, songwriter and former “American Idol” judge, adds another highlight in her career as she is set to become the next Roxie Hart in “Chicago“, a musical hit of  Broadway, as reported in various entertainment news sites, June 18, 2011.

Apparently, Kara DioGuardi, Platinum Hit‘s head judge, was overjoyed as she will star as Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning revival of “Chicago“.

“They called me, and I auditioned. The dancing is a problem for me, because I’m not a trained dancer. Now I’ve got my hips moving ways they never moved.It’s a great new challenge. Idol opened all these doors for me, and what it did more than anything was face my stage fright,” Kara was quoted on reports.

It was noted that Broadway‘s “Chicago”, which was originally presented in 1975, produced a successful Broadway revival in 1996 which still holds the record for the longest-running musical revival on Broadway.

Kara DioGuardi will join the list of other stars that played the role of Roxie Hart which include Christie Brinkley, Brooke Shields, Sandy Duncan, Michelle Williams and Melanie Griffith.
