Jessica Biel’s ready for her close-up — on The Great White Way. Biel — who shares a home with boyfriend Justin Timberlake in the City That Never Sleeps — is preparing to show off her musical talents on the city’s famed theater district after landing a role in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, a stage musical based on Antonio Banderas’ hit 1988 Spanish comedy of the same name.

Spanish director Pedro Almodovar directed the screen adaptation of the film and is confident that Biel has a wonderful voice that will be welcomed by theater fans. He also reveals that everyone connected with the production is excited about Jessica’s casting.

This isn’t the first time JB will be gracing the live stage: The stunning star took secret singing lessons in 2009 to prepare for a role in a production of Guys & Dolls at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles last summer.

Breakdown opens on Broadway this fall.
