According to the NY Post's Page Six, the two stars of the Broadway hit show A Color Purple, are fighting. Not over money, or stage time . . . but over dressing rooms. Here is how the NY Post is explaining the feud.
Heather Headley is the toast of Broadway, having successfully taken over for Jennifer Hudson in “The Color Purple.” But we hear one person who wasn’t thrilled with the details of Headley’s arrival at the Jacobs Theatre is the show’s megatalented Cynthia Erivo.
“Cynthia is the star, but when ‘The Color Purple’ launched, Jennifer got first choice of dressing rooms,” said a source. Erivo “was not happy.” Then, when Hudson left, her plum dressing room went straight to Headley and wasn’t offered to Erivo. “Cynthia has been on a tear backstage. She is furious,” said our source.
