Ashanti is desperate to get her thick thighs back on stage so she’s signing up to do The Wiz. When we think of Dorothy, we don’t think of Mrs. Nelly. What do you think? Check the b-side for more
The singer-actress, 28, will mark her stage debut as the Toto-toting Dorothy in the soulful version of the The Wizard of Oz, which originally starred Stephanie Mills on Broadway and, in the 1978 movie, Diana Ross. This version runs June 12 to July 5 at the New York City Center, as part of the Encores! Summer Stars series.
Though she’s new to the New York stage, Ashanti is no stranger to the role. She played Dorothy in the 2005 TV movie, The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz.
The Muppets Wizard of Oz starring Ashanti? Damn, girl, we knew times were hard but the muppets?
