Broadway Ladies: Ms. April 2014: If/Then's LaChanze
WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: I've been a fan of hers since I first heard the cast recording of Once on This Island, and I finally got to see her in the 1995 revival of Company, where she sang a killer "Another Hundred People." She also has had a few nice roles on TV and the movies, including One Life to Live, Disney's Hercules, and The Help. But she's a real stage kinda gal both on and off Broadway. She made her debut in Uptown...It's Hot!, followed by a revival of Dreamgirls, and took on roles in such shows as Dessa Rose, Ragtime, and of course, her Tony-winning turn in The Color Purple. So, why now? Why Ms. April? Well, she's making quite an impression in If/Then! Welcome back, LaChanze!
