Blac Chyna Announces She'll be Playing Halle Berry's role in '*B*A*P*S*'

She announced on Wednesday that she's been cast to play the role of Nisi in the upcoming *B*A*P*S* Live play.

Blac Chyna included a photo of what appears to be her in character. She captioned the post, "Wow God is so good and everything that I’ve ever envisioned is finally all happening! I’m so excited to announce that I will be playing 'NiSi' the role that @halleberry played in 1997."

The live adaptation of the 1997 comedy starring Halle Berry, Natalie Desselle and Martin Landau is a Je’Caryous Johnson production, who also brought New Jack City to the stage. J. Kyle Manzay, who appeared as Dexter Lucas in Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe's American Gangster, is set to direct the live play, which will open on Mother's Day weekend beginning May 11 in Detroit, with more stops scheduled in Los Angeles (May 18-21) and Atlanta (June 8-11).

"We will also tour again in the Fall so stay tuned," Blac Chyna added in her caption.

*B*A*P*S* Live, an acronym for Black American Princesses, is an adaptation of the film written by Troy Byer and directed by Robert Townsend. While the movie bombed at the box office, it earned a cult following. The film included several high-profile cameos, including from LL Cool J, Heavy D and Dennis Rodman.
