Jennifer Hudson to Play Jewel in The Best Little Whorehouse
|Ms. Hudson is quite the busy bee lately. On October 16th at 7:30 pm at the August Wilson Theatre, in New York City Jennifer will be starring as Jewel in a one night only concert of "The Best Little Whorehouse." Here is some info about the play from the actors fund website:|
"Originally staged on Broadway in 1978 (and a film starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds), WHOREHOUSE dramatizes the real-life story of a legendary house of ill-repute that remained open for many years until the Governor orders the local sheriff to shut it down. THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS is a rip-roaring, high octane production! Join Miss Mona and her girls as they take on the establishment! Don't miss this unforgettable Benefit Performance production and support The Actors' Fund. All proceeds benefit The Actors' Fund of America. Originally produced on the New York stage by Stevie Phillips in association with Universal Pictures. Originally produced by the Actors’ Studio. Cast in formation and subject to change."
