Shot in a New York City theater, Jennifer Hudson goes retro in purple on the cover of O, The Oprah Magazine in the December 2015 issue.
Looking all glam in top brands like Tadashi Shoji, Kate Spade and Mandalay, the 34-year-old entertainer talks about making her Broadway debut with ‘The Colour Purple’ and how she has kept from being too nervous.
Take a Look at What She Said:
Her Broadway debut as Shug Avery in The Color Purple: “I have butterflies taking on this role, but I like that. I never second guessed it – I just hopped right in. She is such a different funky character for me and I was very attached to book and the film.”
Her family enjoying living in New York: “We love seeing musicals. We’ve made it to The Lion King and Wicked already. My son says, ‘Mommy, this feels like home!’”
Taking care of her voice: “Plenty of rest, and I drink lots of warm water with lemon and honey.”
The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Tuesday (November 10) held the first preview of Broadway’s The Color Purple in New York.
