Michelle Williams = Shug Avery
Paging Jesus, paging Jesus. You're wanted on the main line STAT!
Michelle Williams of the R&B group Destiny's Child is joining the Chicago production of "The Color Purple," the producers announced Tuesday.
Williams will play the role of Shug Avery, a sexy blues singer.
The stage version of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel will open in Chicago on April 17. It's still playing on Broadway.
Several of the stars of the New York production — including Jeannette Bayardelle, who plays the lead character of Celie, and Felicia P. Fields, who received a Tony nomination for her portrayal of the feisty Sofia — are joining the tour in Chicago.
Producer Scott Sanders said casting Williams as Shug Avery seemed like a natural choice because Shug is the one character in the musical who has "seen the world." (source)
First the stock market takes a plunge now this. Does this mean there is going to be some girl on girl action with Fantasia? Heavens to Betsy, there won't be any lesbians left in the audience when the show is complete.
