R&B songbird Ashanti, whom you might recall from her string of top-ten hits in the early aughts, is prepared to make her comeback when she takes on the role of Dorothy in the New York City Center's production of The Wiz. We're totally fine with this, just so long as Ja Rule doesn't get cast in the title role. [Arts Beat/NYT]
