Michelle Williams has officially put the #poorMichelle hashtag that took over the internet this weekend to rest.
She’s landed a gig playing Mary Magdalene on the 50 date North American tour of rock opera play Jesus Christ Superstar. Alongside her in the play are are N’ Sync’s JC Chasez, Johnny “Rotten” Lydon from the Sex Pistols, and Brandon Boyd of Incumbus.
Williams took to her instagram to talk about the new role:
Blessed to stand in the company of Academy, Golden Globe, Tony and Grammy Award winning writers and composers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Their credits combined include…Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita, Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast, The Lion King, AIDA, Phantom of the Opera, and Cats! I’m honored because two out 5 Broadway shows that I’ve been in are their shows!! AIDA in 2003 and now Jesus Christ Superstar! They have written and composed timeless music that we allllllll love!! I remember in my childhood being rejected for shows in theatre but God had another plan! I stayed true to my love for the arts and NEVER gave up!! Hope this encourages some of you to keep fighting! Do the work, prepare!!! This little girl from Rockford, IL…her dreams are coming true!! #vision#dreams#broadway#theatre#inspire
Maybe broadway is Michelle’s new calling.
