Enjoying a nice summer break from her day job, Grey’s Anatomy star Chandra Wilson steps in to the celebrated role of Matron “Mama” Morton in the hit musical Chicago.

The 39-year-old actress will be in the Broadway show for a four-week limited tenure starting Monday, June 8. Here's Chandra in a different role than we normally see:

Chandra Wilson looks great. I'am so happy she is doing this. Hope there is some video since its in Broadway, and it is way toooo far from where I live. Now this is the kind of news that I like to see. So proud of her.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
