Tony and Grammy Award winner, Ms. Holliday shot to national stardom when she was cast in Michael Bennett's "Dreamgirls" playing the role of "Effie".  Her iconic performance won her the Tony, Drama Desk, and Theater World awards for Best Actress in a Musical. Her performance in the role was widely acclaimed, particularly for her show-stopping, heart-wrenching, rendition of the musical's number that ends Act One, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going". Her rendition of the song later hit number one on the Billboard charts.
Her other Broadway credits include starring roles in the musicals, "Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With God","Chicago", and "The Color Purple". Ms. Holliday's recording career, including R&B, Gospel, Broadway, and Pop, has flourished since her breakout performance in "Dreamgirls". She has been seen on numerous television series and specials including "Touched By An Angel",
"Hang Time", and in a reoccurring role on "Ally McBeal, among others.
An "Evening With Jennifer Holliday" will be a not-to-be-missed finale to the Annenberg Theater Council's exciting 2017-2018 "season".
