La Toya Jackson is heading to the stage in NY.
Jackson will star in the off- Broadway show, Newsical the Musical starting Sept. 3.
The singer-producer will take over for actress Jackée Harry (Sister Sister).
“I’ve wanted to do [theater], but on Broadway the shows play for such a long, extended time,” said Jackson.
Jackson will star in the off-Broadway show through Sept. 8.
To prepare for the role, Jackson took an acting workshop. In an addition to that, she checked out Kim Coles and Kym Whitley’s weekly Ladies Night Live Comedy Show in LA.
Once Jackson’s run is over, she can then decide whether or not she wants to return later on.
