Despite initial plans for R&B crooner/heartthrob Usher Raymond to extend his time in Chicago by two weeks (to October 14), those plans have apparently been scuttled by a bad case of strep throat. He has been out of performances since October 6.
Christopher McDonald is once again set to takeover the role of Billy Flynn this coming Sunday (he performed in the role last year), before the 10 year old musical welcomes Huey Lewis back to the production on November 20.
Here's wishing Usher a speedy recovery.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
