Performances at the Filene Center are scheduled for Aug. 22-25, 2013, as part of the Wolf Trap summer 2013 season.
Additional casting and creative team will be announced at a later time.
A native of Houston, Jennifer Holliday made her professional New York theatre debut in 1980 in the revival of Your Arms Too Short to Box With God. That role led to her Tony-winning performance in Dreamgirls, and her rendition of that show's "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" earned the singer-actress her first Grammy Award. She has also appeared on Broadway in the revivals of Grease! and Chicago, and her television credits include "Ellen," "Touched By an Angel" and a recurring role on "Ally McBeal." Holliday earned another Grammy Award for her recording of Duke Ellington's "Come Sunday."
Tickets will go on sale Dec. 8. For more information visit Wolftrap.org.
