More from Deadline

A Tony and Grammy winner and Emmy nominee for her Broadway performance in Hamilton, Goldsberry starred as Nettie in the original Broadway production of The Color Purple and as Mimi in Rent, along with roles in TV series The Good Wife and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and the movie Tick, Tick… Boom! Now, you can see her flex both her acting and musical muscles in Girls5eva Season 3—the comedy series that earned Goldsberry Critics Choice nominations in 2022 and 2023. The show recently moved to Netflix for its third season.

Girls5eva follows an early aughts girl group as they try to get the band back together 20 years later. It’s a sort of Spice Girls reunion tour meets Spinal Tap with a side of Bridesmaids. Case in point: Goldsberry, as wannabe popstar Wickie Roy, announces that, like Billie Eilish, she too can have a documentary. Mainly because she can also “wear hoodies and have a brother”.

Created by Meredith Scardino (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and executive produced by Tina Fey, the show is packed to the gills with laugh-out-loud gems, and also stars Paula Pell, Busy Phillips and Sara Bareilles.

In this episode, Goldsberry recalls some childhood memories, reveals the shows she would pack in her nuclear bunker and even sings us our favorite Girls5eva song…
