Chicago’s Brandy Norwood Gave Her Wiz Audition on the Subway…And It Was Damn Good

Grammy winner Brandy Norwood moved to the Big Apple in April to star (and SLAY) as Roxie Hart in Chicago, and anyone who has ever moved to New York knows, there’s a period of adjustment that has to happen. One of the biggest challenges (and most rewarding once you’ve mastered it) is the subway system. Now Brandy hasn’t just mastered the subway, she’s made herself at home there. In her latest blog post, she shares a video of her doing a full-out rendition of “Home” from The Wiz on a subway car (incognito, of course) and not getting a single fan moment, a hallelujah, a yas kween...nothing. Brandy, you just chose the wrong car because we would have led a standing ovation for that. Take note, Kenny Leon.
Check out Brandy in 'Chicago' at Broadway's Ambassador Theatre through August 2.
