La Toya Jackson - La Toya Jackson to star in New York play

La Toya Jackson is to star in a New York play.

The 57-year-old actress will take over from Emmy-winning television star Jackée Harry for a week in Rick Crom's off-Broadway production of 'NEWSical the Musical', which merges celebrity and political scandals with catchy music, before deciding whether to return to theatre permanently.

Speaking to the New York Post newspaper, she said: ''I've wanted to do [theatre] but on Broadway the shows play for such a long, extended time.''

Meanwhile, the singer-songwriter has been tied up in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by her family against AEG live.

The Jackson's are suing the company as they believe they negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray - who is currently serving four years imprisonment for involuntary manslaughter - who administered the lethal dose of Propofol which killed her brother Michael Jackson in 2009.

Only one member of the Jackson family are allowed to be present in the court room at one time, which Toya says has been challenging for her mother, Katherine Jackson.

She said: ''I speak to my mother every day. This has been very taxing on her. But she's so strong. She's holding up so well. We were all there for the last trial.''
