If Marisha Wallace had her wish granted, she would have the role of the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin. A member of the ensemble of the Broadway company, Wallace uses her celebrity self-tape to audition for this gender-bent twist on the role typically played by a male actor.
Wallace has also been seen on Broadway in Something Rotten! and the national tour of The Book of Mormon. She covered the role of Effie White in the West End production of Dreamgirls and starred in the long-running Off-Broadway show Sistas The Musical.
