Meka is currently featured in the musical theatre cult classic, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. This is Meka's second run on Skid Row. This time she's playing the sassy, belty "Urchin," CRYSTAL. Meka is thrilled to be a part of one of her favorite shows again. She's also excited to be so close to Detroit: The Motor City! Playing a doo-wap girl group, in the birthplace of Motown has a special meaning! Meka is receiving rave reviews as a part of this stellar ensemble cast!

THAT'S A WRAP:

THE COLOR PURPLE

Meka recently wrapped up a run of THE COLOR PURPLE where she played the iconic role of SHUG AVERY. She followed in the footsteps of her friends Elisabeth Withers and Heather Headley, as well as the other icons - Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Holiday. The role was originally made famous by Margaret Avery in the film adaptation of Alice Walker's bestselling novel. The musical revival tells the tale of Black pain and trauma, excellence and joy! Meka loved performing in the show and is grateful to Chicago Director Daryl Brooks, Choreographer Rueben Echoles and The Phoenix Theatre Company for the wonderful opportunity to tell this incredible story!

If Ms. Fleming's (Celie) force of nature has a counterpart, it is in the brilliant performance by Meka King as Shug Avery, the flamboyant one-time mistress to Mister whose endearing relationship with Celie is a portal to Celie's self-actualization.
