Soul great Patti Labelle is the latest star to play MAMA MORTON on stage after joining the Los Angeles cast of Chicago.

The LADY MARMALADE singer will take on the busty prison matron, played by Queen Latifah in the OSCAR-winning film, when the musical begins at Los Angeles' Pantages theatre next month (FEB05).

The Los Angeles cast also features former American chat show host WAYNE BRADY as BILLY FLYNN.
