BRUCE WILLIS' DAUGHTER is beating her famous dad to Broadway.
Producers of the long-running musical Chicago said last Thursday that Rumer Willis, recently named Dancing with the Stars winner, will make her Broadway debut in August as Roxie Hart.
Her dad will be making his Broadway debut in Misery starting in October.
Set in the 1920s, Chicago is a scathing satire of how show business and the media make celebrities out of criminals. It has Bob Fosse-inspired choreography, skimpy outfits and killer songs such as All That Jazz, Cell Block Tango and Mr. Cellophane.
Rumer Willis, who has been onstage in Love, Loss and What I Wore and opposite her mother Demi Moore in the films Striptease and Now and Then, will start at the Ambassador Theatre on August 18 and end her run October 11.
Just some of the stars who have done stints in the show include Sofia Vergara, Melanie Griffith, Brooke Shields, Ashlee Simpson, Paige Davis, Marilu Henner, Rita Wilson and Christie Brinkley.
Bruce Willis will star in an adaptation of Stephen King's novel Misery, which begins performances October 22 at the Broadhurst Theatre. Laurie Metcalf will appear opposite the Die Hard star. AP
