Tony Award Winner LaChanze Joins the Cast of Swimming Upstream

On September 10, 2010, at 8 p.m., Swimming Upstream hits the stage at Mahalia Jackson Theater, 801 N. Rampart Street in New Orleans for one night only.  The show will travel from the Big Easy to the Big Apple on September 13, for a one-nighter at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York.  We are very excited to announce that actor/singer/dancer/author LaChanze has joined the cast. 

Sure to ignite the stage, LaChanze has an extensive background on and off-Broadway. She received a 2006 Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for The Color Purple, an Obie Award for Performance in 2005 for Dessa Rose, and in 1991 a Theatre World Award for Once on This Island. She has received numerous nominations for her theater work and has had roles on The Cosby Show (1988), Leap of Faith (1992), For Love or Money (1993), Law & Order: SVU (2008), and Sex and the City (1999), to name a few. LaChanze has also appeared in Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues.


Writing about one of her performances, Roma Torre of New York 1 News says, “The Color Purple is dominated by dynamite performances. LaChanze beautifully captures Celie’s stages of growth from a naïve innocent to an embittered and eventually enlightened adult, and she has us hooked on her harrowing journey every step of the way.”

Howard Shapiro of The Philadelphia writes of her performance in The Color Purple, “The lead character is Celie, played by the single-named, triple-threat LaChanze; she sings spectacularly, her acting is solid.”

She can’t help but bring a bit of Broadway to the New Orleans stage.
