Jennifer Hudson - Jennifer Holliday To Return To Dreamgirls

Singer Jennifer Holliday is set to reprise the role that landed Jennifer Hudson an Oscar in the film version of Dreamgirls.
Holliday was the original Effie White on Broadway in the early 1980s and now she's planning a return as the downtrodden diva in St. Louis, Missouri this summer (12).
She insists her appearance in Dreamgirls at the Muny theatre will mark the last time she'll hit the stage as Effie, stating, "I don't want to turn into (Sunset Boulevard character) Norma Desmond or, remember that scene in Mommie Dearest, when Joan Crawford's grown daughter is in the hospital and she sees her mother on TV, playing her role in a soap opera? I think I can just get away with it one more time."

Good! for Ms. J. Holliday. However, I seriously doubt she will do as great as Jhud did. See, Ms. J. Holliday tends to over due and over sings her songs alot. Sorry, people Jennifer Hudson was just amazing and incredible durning that time of Dreamgirls.
