On making her Broadway debut as Shug Avery in The Color Purple: “I have butterflies taking on this role, but I like that. I never second guessed it – I just hopped right in. She is such a different funky character for me and I was very attached to book and the film.”

On her family enjoying living in New York: “We love seeing musicals. We’ve made it to The Lion King and Wicked already. My son says, ‘Mommy, this feels like home!’”

How she takes care of her voice: “Plenty of rest, and I drink lots of warm water with lemon and honey.”
