  1. i have never seen her on Broadway but would love to know if anyone has seen her and what you think….. Let me know if anyone has seen her.

  2. I have seen clips of her from when she did Chicago and she was believable. She’s actually quite a good actress and killer vocalist. She’ll do well in this new role.

  3. I wondered too, found a raving review from The Color Purple stint. I caught her with veteran actor Clifton Davis in one of those black televised plays on BET…Michelle is very good!!!…nice comedic timing…the wardrobe was hot too!…Michelle could easily be a style maven or fashionista…she’s more commanding than I once thought…I look forward to seeing her perform on Broadway…and more acting roles! A big singing career may or may not happen, but she has tackled a very tough frontier, “Live Theater”…Broadway…so, kudos to Michelle for this new journey!

  4. Congrats to her. Staying busy. Singing and performing.
