Jennifer Hudson to make Broadway Debut in "The Color Purple"
Jennifer Hudson will soon be lending her powerhouse voice to the Broadway Stage! Jennifer will reportedly play Shug Avery in the revival musical version of “The Color Purple.”
Oprah Winfrey will also be lending her talents to the production as co-producer alongside Scott Sanders and Roy Furman,
“The Color Purple” revival initially made its debut last year at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and is now making it’s way to New York.
Now that she is set to make her Broadway debut, the speculation is whether this role will land JHUD a Tony win. She already has an Oscar, Golden Globe, and Grammy under a belt so a Tony would just make her that much more amazing.
Either way, it’s refreshing to continue seeing black talent taking the Broadway stage. Congrats Jennifer! We look forward to your performance.
