It’s just been announced that Dreamgirls is returning to Broadway in 2009. Stated to open in November of 2009 an equity cast notice is not in circulation casting for the roles in the play. Auditions start on October 2 for the major lead roles and rehearsals for minor roles start later this week. Robert Longbottom will direct the play and Shane Sparks will be doing some of the choreography.
So the question is…will J. Hudson try her hand as Effie on Broadway? Will Beyonce reprise her role as Deena Jones? Will Fantasia try to return to Broadway as Effie since she didn’t get the role in the movie?
