Three actresses are getting ready to take Broadway by storm this fall when they make their debuts in the London transfer of John Doyle's acclaimed new production of the musical The Color Purple, based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer-winning novel and Stephen Spielberg's Oscar-nominated film. Jennifer Hudson, an Oscar winner for Dreamgirls, Danielle Brooks, Taystee on Orange Is the New Black, and West End stage vet Cynthia Erivo are actually watching their dreams come true before their very eyes. Long before they even begin rehearsals, the women and director Doyle met with TheaterMania to share their enthusiasm. And it's infectious.
