Fantasia Barrino (or just Fantasia, if you’re nasty) may join the cast of The Color Purple on Broadway. She’d play Celie, even though she seems more like a Shug Avery.
I don’t doubt that Fantasia has the pipes, but what about the acting chops? One way to find out, I guess. If all goes well, maybe they’ll revive Porgy and Bess for her. Her performance of “Summertime” remains a goosebump moment for me.
