Last week, when it was announced that the Broadway revival of The Trip to Bountiful, which was initially scheduled for a 14-week limited engagement through July 7, received a second extension to close on October 9, I wondered whether co-star Condola Rashad would be replaced for the latter half of the Bountiful extension, since she's already signed up for another Broadway play - a new adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, with an interracial twist, which will see her play Juliet opposite Orlando Bloom. That play is set to begin previews on August 24, for a September 19 opening, which would obviously conflict with Rashad's time on the extended Bountiful run (now through October 9).So who's going to take over for her during the latter half of Bountiful's run?Adepero Oduye, making her Broadway debut, although she's no stranger to the stage.Producers of the critically-acclaimed revival made the announcement today, adding that Oduye will actually be taking over for Rashad this week!
