"A year ago, the producers of "The Color Purple" called Jennifer Hudson (@iamjhud) and asked if she would consider joining the cast of the Broadway show's revival. "I said: 'Sure. Yes. Great. Got it. Yup,'" @iamjhud recalled. Only then did she wonder which role they wanted her to play. The answer: Shug Avery, a voluptuous nightclub singer who awakens the musical's heroine to love and sexual pleasure. This came as something of a surprise. The singer and actress thinks of herself as "the big girl with the big voice and the big personality." Not a siren. "But I was like, 'OK, I think I got a bit of Shug Avery in me," @iamjhud said. @bwaycolorpurple, which is in previews, opens on December 10. @cgbp photographed #JenniferHudson while on #nytassignment."
