This week New York City Center issued a press release announcing the cast of its summer run of The Wiz.
Semi-actor Orlando Jones will play The Wiz
Real-actress Lachanze will play Glinda, the Good Witch
Quasi-actress Tischina Arnold will play my personal fave Evilene.....
y'all remember Evilene right??
She's the one that didn't want 'No Bad News'
......ahhh a woman after my own heart.
The Wiz will run from June 12 to July 5 at the New York City Center
Cop yours early!!!
And by 'early' I don't mean C.P. time.
While I have no faith in Ashanti doing a semi-decent job, I think everyone else should
be able to hit the mark.
I'm sure Mizz Ross will be present, tipsy of course, front and center opening night waiting for 'Shanti to hit a wrong note, miss a line or prayin for her lace front to slip in the middle of Act 2.
And by Mizz Ross, I mean ME....
