Jennifer Hudson is coming to Broadway! (I know, what took her so long?) The Color Purple, based on Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize winning book, is the perfect vehicle for her. Jennifer will be playing Shug Avery to Cynthia Ervio’s Celie, the role she played on the London stage.
Here are the ladies singing the title song. It makes me very sorry I am on the other side of the country and can’t see it. 🙁 Here’s hoping the traveling version will make a stop near me soon.
When the cast album is available, I am so there.
