After surviving the continued drama on Wysteria Lane, Emmy and Tony nominee Vanessa Williams is moving to another mysterious locale as the star of ABC's new supernatural thriller 666 Park Avenue. Now that Williams is taking up residence on the Upper East Side, can audiences expect her to head back down to the Theater District? Broadway.com caught up with Williams to see if she has any stage work on her radar.
“It hasn’t been written yet,” Williams said of the show that would lure her back to Broadway. “There are a lot of ideas that I would like to kick around. If there’s anything I can do with Audra [McDonald] —that would get me back in a heartbeat! Sisters or rivals or something. We need to work on it.”
Williams did have the chance to share the stage with McDonald when she served as host of the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in 2011. The Ugly Betty veteran made her Broadway debut in Kiss of the Spider Woman, and earned a Tony nod for playing the Witch in the 2002 revival of Into the Woods. She later honored the fairy tale musical's composer in 2010's Sondheim on Sondheim.
Looks like the ball is in your court now, Audra. Don’t disappoint us!
Tune into 666 Park Avenue's premiere on September 30, and relive Williams' last Broadway outing below as she duets with Sondheim on Sondheim co-star Barbara Cook.
