Jennifer Hudson Makes 'The Color Purple' Broadway Debut!
Jennifer Hudson is all smiles while taking her first bow at the first preview of Broadway’s The Color Purple held at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Tuesday (November 10) in New York City.
The 34-year-old entertainer is featured in the December issue of O, The Oprah Magazine in support of the John Doyle Broadway revival – See what she had to share with the mag below!
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.”
