She had lousy attendance, but I thought she was pretty terrific in The Color Purple.

I don't think it's Motown. I'm thinking it will be Cotton Club Parade as well.

Fantasia could never sing The Bodyguard score. Her voice has become so wrecked over the last few years. So that's definitely not it.

CHICAGO or COTTON CLUB PARADE makes the most sense. I know COTTON... is nearing its final stage of the casting process, so I imagine we'll find out soon enough.

This is kind of off topic, but I saw the title of this thread and my mind immediatly went to the Walt Disney film Fantasia. For a second I was shocked, cause I didn't know there had ever been a theatrical production of Fantasia.


Anyways, carry on!

I'll book my month long stay in NYC now in an attempt to see her perform once. Tried 4 times with The Color Purple to no avail. She has no work ethic. NONE.

Motown doesn't need her. not now at least.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Nala in The Lion King? (To be honest, I can actually see her in this show. Even though they don't need her for ticket sales and what not, it's basically sold out every week)

She is actually playing Nala in The Lion King right now- she just hasn't made it to a performance yet.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Joe, I heard she actually arrived for a matinee once, but at 1:00 am, not pm.
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

She got a bad Turkey Club and missed a month's worth of performances. I did see her and Jeremy Piven out for sushi the other night, so maybe she's on the road to recovery.

Is this some kind of sick joke, being played on the theater community?

The box office staff is sweating I'm sure.
