Jennifer Hudson & Danielle Brooks Bring 'The Color Purple' To Broadway

Jennifer Hudson rocks out a cute black and white look at the Broadway cast photo call of her new play The Color Purple at Intercontinental Hotel on Friday (November 20) in New York City.

“I just love the energy that the people bring,” the 34-year-old actress told Broadway.com. “Just to see the love for theater and live music and seeing it being appreciated, it drives me. I just love it!”

Other cast members in attendance: Kyle Scatliffe, Danielle Brooks, Cynthia Erivo, Joaquina Kalukango, and Isaiah Johnson.

“I’m so grateful that I get to do this,” Danielle said. “I love every bit about it. It’s been a thrill from the first rehearsal to the first preview and now [it's] creeping up on the opening, so it’s been great.”

The Color Purple will officially open on Thursday, December 10th at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 W 45th Street).
