Jennifer Holliday On Dreamgirls and The Colour Purple

Last Updated on 13th December 2016

Our friends at Theater Talk have recently released this great interview with Jennifer Holliday, who is currently appearing in The Colour Purple on Broadway.

Holliday is perhaps best-known as the original Effie in the Broadway production of Dreamgirls thirty years ago, a performance that won her a Tony Award.

It’s an interesting conversation talking about how the role developed, her working relationship with director / choreographer Michael Bennett.

For musical theatre fans this is a real treat and of interest as London finally gets a chance to see Dreamgirls on stage for the first time.

Enjoy this interview and if you haven’t already …
