Some of you may have heard last year that Cedric Neal, one of Dallas’ most acclaimed musical performers, was up for a key role in the first national tour of “The Color Purple.” He auditioned multiple times, but he didn’t get it.Now comes word he’s being scouted for the role of Donkey in the Broadway production of “Shrek, the Musical.” We hear Sutton Foster has already signed on to play Fiona. Don’t worry, Sutton; Cedric won’t upstage you. Too much. Break a leg, Cedric!
