After 5 years, she's finally returning to the Great White Way!

Deborah Cox, Broadway alum and 3 time JUNO-winning R&B singer, will be taking the lead in a musical based on iconic American performer Josephine Baker.

Baker became famous in the 1930s in France as a singer, dancer and actor and later became a civil right activist in the US.

Deborah was last on Broadway in the musical Aida, which Elton John wrote the music for!

Welcome back!

    I love her. I saw her in AIDA and she just about sang the roof off the Palace Theatre. I hope the songs in this new musical are good — and in English.

    Actually, she became famous in the 1920s…

    History major nitpick!

    Is it just this new wide computer screen I have, or is she looking awfully thick?

    Major miscasting since she doesn't look like or have the same body type as Josephine Baker. BTW, Josephine Baker was in Paris from the early '20s.

    Damn, I would never thought that Deborah Cox would be on this site. She's a one hit wonder from the 90s, why the hell is she on here.
