LaChanze -- a Broadway stage veteran who originated the role of Celie in The Color Purple opposite Renee Elise Goldsberry (ex-Evangeline) and won a Tony Award for her performance -- has been cast on ONE LIFE TO LIVE in the recurring role of Yvette. A show rep says that Yvette will have a "surprising connection to someone in Llanview." Look for LaChanze to first air in June.
