Well, there’s always Night, Mother if this doesn’t work out…Plus whatever happens, Oprah will be in the Theater District later this year producing Jennifer Hudson in The Color Purple. Casting Set for Kander & Pierce’s Kid Victory Tony nominee Christiane Noll, along with Broadway alums Sarah Litzsinger and Jeffry Denman, have been tapped for John Kander and Greg Pierce’s previously announced Kid Victory. The ensemble piece’s cast will also include Christopher Bloch, Laura Darrell, Parker Drown, Valerie Leonard, Bobby Smith and Jake Winn.
