Fantasia is back on track and she’s got a new gig on Broadway. Get the deets inside, plus sneak peeks at Idris Elba in the new Mandela bipic and Jamie Foxx as the villain in Amazing Spiderman 2…
Fanny is spending her days in the gym, being a mom to two kiddies, and promoting her Side Effects Of You music. And so far, it’s keeping her life drama free. Now, she’s got a new gig as the first guest star in the Broadway production of After Midnight.
After working it out in The Color Purple on Broadway back in ’07, Fanny will be one of 25 singers and dancers to star in the jazzy musical production. Broadway.com describes it in full:
Conceived by Jack Viertel, After Midnight is an evocative new musical that tackles the sexy, smoky glamour of the Jazz Age, set in the heyday of Duke Ellington’s years at Harlem’s Cotton Club. The ever-changing list of stars is reflective of the Cotton Club’s weekly rotation of guests during its “Celebrity Nights,” which included the likes of Lena Horne, Judy Garland, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.
Sounds right up her alley. She will perform from the beginning of previews on October 18 through February 9, 2014, and will be the major headliner for the official opening on November 3. Congrats Fanny!
