Josephine is coming to Broadway…by way of Deborah Cox. The R&B artist will play the deceased diva in a production that’s about two decades in the making.
Director, Kenneth Waissman received a script nearly 20 years ago from Suzanne de Passe and Motown. Diana Ross was the first leading lady they had in mind but she couldn’t fulfill to the two year time commitment.
Deborah Cox will star in the play which debuts in the Spring of next year.
