Fantasia Missed 50 Shows
If you're planning a trip to New York to see Fantasia in The Color Purple, don't be mad if get there and she don't show up....
They say your girl missed 50 shows 'cause she simply isn't used to the grueling 8 show a week schedule. The production has been losing bu-ku bucks because when fans find out Fantasia's not singing, they've been demanding refunds. Producers really got pissed off when they found out Fantasia was outside the theater serenading would be concert goers after the production was shut down during the writers strike. One of The Color Purple's backers was overheard griping, "There's no show, and she's out there singing. Now if we could get her to perform when there is a show, we'd be in business."
