Todrick Hall will take the Broadway stage once again, joining the cast of Waitress later this summer. He’ll play Ogie in a limited engagement August 20 through September 15 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.
As previously announced, fellow YouTube-born star Colleen Ballinger (a.k.a. Miranda Sings) will also step into the show for the same four-week period, playing Dawn—the target of Ogie’s eccentric advances. The two frequent collaborators will take over for Noah Galvin and Caitlin Houlahan.
Before reaching viral fame with his elaborate musical videos, Hall appeared on Broadway in Memphis and the original production of The Color Purple. He went on to star as Billy Flynn in Chicago and as Lola in Kinky Boots; he'll reprise his performance of the latter next year with 3-D Theatricals' West Coast regional premiere of the musical.
The current cast of the Sara Bareilles musical includes Shoshana Bean as Jenna (through July 7), Erich Bergen as Dr. Pomatter, Charity Angél Dawson as Becky, Ben Thompson as Earl, Larry Marshall as Joe, and Benny Elledge as Cal.
