Tony nominee Sheryl Lee Ralph returns to TV on November 22 as a wealthy woman with a puppy problem in the Nickelodeon series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. And just check out how fierce she looks with that streak in her hair.
Ralph is no stranger to the screen thanks to memorable roles on TV’s Instant Mom, Moesha, Smash, It's A Living, Ray Donovan and Designing Women and the film Sister Act 2 (“singing their shoulda-coulda-woulda's”). But when we hear Sheryl Lee Ralph, we think Deena Jones. Ralph received a Best Actress in a Musical Tony nomination for creating the role of Deena in the original Broadway production of Dreamgirls back in 1981. Take a moment and indulge in that infamous Tony clip—and just focus in on SLR’s slither into the scene at the 1:35.
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s really celebrate and honor Ralph’s Deena Jones with these 15 rare and stunning production photos from Martha Swope. #TBT.
Tune in to Nickelodeon on November 22 to see Ralph dazzle on Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.
