Usher to star in off-Broadway play for a day

By Daniel S Levine,

Limited engagements for big names in off-Broadway plays are nothing new. R&B singer Usher, though, is going to take it to the next level. He will star in the off-Broadway production of Fuerza Bruta for just one day.

Billboard reports that the singer, who is working on his next album, Looking For Myself, will give just two performances in the show, both on April 28. The first is scheduled for 7 p.m., with the second at 10 p.m. He will be joined by actors Daniel Case, Lauren Gibbs, John Hartzell, Brooke Miyasaki, Kira Morris and Holly Shunkey.

According to The Associated Press, the performances will be staged at the Daryl Roth Theater in New York. The play was created by Diqui James and has previously been staged in Madrid, Berlin and Tel Aviv.

Tickets for the show will cost $150 with VIP tickets going for $200. The VIP tickets include a T-shirt, a signed poster by Usher and a digital download for his upcoming album, which will be released on June 12.

Usher is also working on the Sugar Ray Leonard biopic Hands of Stone.
