American actress Syesha Mercado gets the role 'Dreamgirls'

Syesha Mercado has picked up the Deena Jones role in a national touring production of Dreamgirls. That's the role that Beyoncé played in the film version of the musical.

"Dreamgirls" has turned to an "American Idol" alum to play one of the leads in the upcoming stage revival of the musical in New York City.
Moya Angela will play the pivotal role of Effie White in the production. Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar for her portrayal of Effie in the film.

The touring production of Dreamgirls will premiere at the Apollo Theater in Harlem in November. The show opens Sunday, Nov. 22, and runs four weeks, through Dec. 6.
