    Get ready, Los Angeles, because they're gonna paint the town!

    Ashlee Simpson and Les Misérables star Samantha Barks revealed a sneak peek inside their dance rehearsals for an upcoming production of Chicago at the Hollywood Bowl.

    The blond beauty retweeted a pic of the two ladies doing cartwheels at a Studio City, Calif., dance studio.

    Jessica Simpson's younger sister is slated to star as Roxie Hart in the star-studded revival of the musical.

    This isn't the first time that 28-year-old has tackled the complex character, however. She originally played Hart in 2006 in the West End run of the show.

    Brooke Shields nabbed the directing gig, while True Blood's Stephen Moyer, Drew Carey and Lucy Lawless will all be starring in the special production.

    Simpson's seemingly new love, Evan Ross, has been taking the role of supportive boyfriend on Twitter recently. Diana Ross' son posted a pic of his gal's play practice and posted the following caption:

    "Looks amazing can't wait to c it! Pretty lady @ashleesimpson" Cue the awwws!

    Ross and Simpson seem to be heating up pretty quickly after the two were first spotted hand-in-hand in early July.

    Chicago will run for three performances on July 26 and 27.
