Michelle Williams arrives at the 23rd Annual ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Oct. 24, 2016 in Los Angeles. 

Michelle Williams is heading back to Broadway. The Destiny’s Child songstress will take on the role of Erzulie in the Tony Award winning Once On This Island, starting Nov. 30. 

“I am totally overjoyed to return to Broadway and excited to join the cast of Once On This Island,” she said of this new chapter. “Taking on the role of Erzulie, the Goddess of Love, speaks to my heart.  The musical is such a moving, inclusive, spiritual journey that is needed in these times. It feels just right to represent love.” 

The show, based on the novel My Love, My Love by Rosa Guy, follows the tale of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures keep them apart, Ti Moune is guided by the powerful island gods, Erzulie, Asaka, Papa Ge, and Agwe, on a remarkable quest to reunite with her forbidden love.

Williams will play the role through June 2, 2019. Tickets are on sale via Telecharge
