Discount her with “Oh, she’s just Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter” at your own peril: she has talent. After winning Season 20 of “Dancing with the Stars,” she went on to star as Roxie Hart in “Chicago,” and has filmed an adaptation of “Hello Again” with Audra McDonald. Willis also has spent the past few years working on her cabaret act and style, culminating in an April run at New York’s Cafe Carlyle that lead to New York Times reviewer Stephen Holden calling her “a natural.”
