Grammy Award-winning Destiny’s Child singer Michelle T. Williams returned to Broadway beginning November 30 in the Tony-winning revival of Once On This Island at Circle in the Square.
Williams steps into the role of Erzulie, succeeding Darlesia Cearcy through the end of the musical’s run, which was recently announced as January 6, 2019.
Williams made her Broadway debut in the title role of Aida. She went on to appear in The Color Purple, where she portrayed blues singer Shug Avery, starred as Roxie Hart in the Broadway and West End productions of Chicago, the play What My Husband Doesn’t Know, a national tour of the musical Fela! in 2013, and a 2016 production of Aida at The Muny.
The new immersive production of Once On This Island, which was re-imagined by Tony-nominated director Michael Arden, officially opened December 3, 2017. The musical features a book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty; Camille A. Brown is choreographer, Chris Fenwick is music supervisor, and Alvin Hough Jr. is music director.
