The John Doyle-helmed production will head to the Great White Way later this fall after having debuted at London’s Chocolate Factor back in 2013.
The original Broadway production starred Brandon Victor Dixon, Renee Elise and LaChanz, who won a Tony for her portrayal of Celie. Oprah Winfrey was also a part of that production team.
No word on who will take on the roles of Mister and Celie in the latest adaptation, but word has it producers are looking for more recognizable faces, hence the addition of Hudson.
