How gorgeous is this?! Evilene got a makeover, and Mary J. Blige is slaying it for “The Wiz Live”! Get the rest of her pics inside…

You’ve seen the pics from Common, Uzo Aduba and Queen Latifah for the upcoming live production of “The Wiz,” now here’s Mary J. Blige as Evilene:

Gorge. In the movie and previous plays, Evilene definitely didn’t look this stylish. But times (and costumes) have changed, chile. Now, we’ve got fabulousness like the above to portray the Wicked With of the West. Work!

The live version of “The Wiz” airs on NBC on December 3rd.

By the way, Mary, hit the promo circuit Friday, stopping at “Fox & Friends” and chatting it up with co-host Elizabeth Hasselback:

Fab!

Speaking of live productions:

The cast of “The Color Purple” on Broadway — Kyle Scatliffe, Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Hudson, Cynthia Erivo, Joaquina Kalukango and Isaiah Johnson — attended “The Color Purple” Broadway Cast Photo Call yesterday.

They stepped into the Intercontinental Hotel in New York City and got ready for their big shoot. And Jennifer brought it from legs to face to lips;

Pretty.

“OITNB” star Danielle also kept it fab in all black:

The production is currently running at the Bernard B. Jacobs theater in NYC. Work ladies (and gents)!
