Danielle will join the revival of The Color Purple alongside actress and singer, Jennifer Hudson, where she will play the iconic role of Sofia, played by Oprah Winfrey in the original film.

Jennifer, who is new to Broadway as well, will play the role of Shug *cue’s ‘Sista’*

Production will open later this year on December 10 in New York at the infamous Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

Congrats Danielle! I’m sure she’ll give a great performance!

Side note: OITNB is scheduled to release its third installment on Netflix June 12. Can’t wait for that!
