Former Destiny’s Child star Michelle Williams (II) has been forced to exit Broadway’s “Once on This Island” on her doctor’s orders.

The singer and actress is stepping down from her role as Erzulie just two weeks into her run, which began on 30 November.


She will be replaced by her understudy, Cassondra James, up to 26 December, before Lea Salonga, who originated the role, returns to the cast for the show’s final 10 days.

A statement from the play’s producers reads: “Michelle was advised by her medical doctors to take a leave of absence from performing.”


Michelle, who called off her engagement with Chad Johnson earlier this month, took to social media hours before the news about the end of her play run broke, and wrote: “As 2018 is coming to an end, many of us are doing self-reflections. I’ve made a vow to myself that I will not allow fear to get the best of me any longer! I will stand at my tallest and be the best version of myself. We all have the abilities to meet and live our dreams if we get out of our own way and go after it!”
