Looks like Ashanti is stepping into shoes once filled by Diana Ross as she stars in the Broadway adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, The Wiz which starts a month long run in June at the New York City Center. This will be Ashanti’s debut role on Broadway and possibly the new move that people have been predicting for her as she has allegedly retired from the music bizz.
The Wiz was originally a movie made in the late seventies starring the former Supreme along side funny man Richard Pryor (RIP) and Michael Jackson (when he was still a lil cutie) directed by acclaimed director Sidney Lumet.
