Los Angeles, California (AHN) - Could Britney Spears be Broadway Bound? Published reports say she’s in serious negotiations to make her Broadway debut in the current revival of Sweet Charity. The pop princess would replace Christina Applegate in the title role of the unlucky-in-love dancer, Charity.
The Insider’s Marc Malkin reports that Spears may be joined on stage by her husband Kevin Federline, who’d be a dancer in the show. Producers reportedly really want Spears in the show and will do anything to make it happen.
Sweet Charity is a 1966 musical show directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse. It was made into a film in 1969, directed by Fosse as well. It starred Shirley MacLaine, Chita Rivera, Sammy Davis Jr. and Ricardo Montalban.
PusForLunch: ILL sHOOT THE BITCH MYSELF. SHE WILL NOT PLAY CHARITY!!!!!
YellowGerbil: what is bway coming to???
PusForLunch: so its not just me that considers that stunt casting way way beyond the pale?
PusForLunch: like scary spice in rent was eerie but this
YellowGerbil: yeah this would be too much. and the sad thing is that i don't think it would pull in any more ticketbuyers
PusForLunch: charity was selling well last i checked. they should put charlotte damoise who subbed for chrisi in. i saw in chicago- she was exceptional. stunt cast another role if they need marquee spave surely
PusForLunch: no- like who win people who go to broadway shows would see britney esp as charity?
PusForLunch: charity is not a slut. she is an innocent barely afloat in a corupt world... a naif
YellowGerbil: it's completely rediculous
PusForLunch: britney is like... a slut.
PusForLunch: its offensive!
YellowGerbil: that too
PusForLunch: like.. if she wants to get in beauty and the beast, fine
YellowGerbil: lol or phantom
PusForLunch: but charity is like one the 5 female roles that really matter from the last 40 years
YellowGerbil: yeah it'd be like her trying to play sally. eek
PusForLunch: she could replace rosie in fiddler
YellowGerbil: now that would be genius!
PusForLunch: in that strange way that broadway has 'traditions' charity is so scared that tyhe lovies will revolt. ben brantley with an axe... not pretty
YellowGerbil: yeah i think they're thinking it give bway a boost, but it would be the exact opposite
PusForLunch: it would be more like giving broadway bird flu
PusForLunch: it wont happen- who'd insure britney to show up 8 times a week for 6 months without a drama
YellowGerbil: heh totally
PusForLunch: the woman can have a marriage last less than 24hrs, she's really just an extended paparazzi shot
YellowGerbil: and a baby heh
PusForLunch: thats what spooks me about britney
PusForLunch: she has gone from lolita and symbolic pin-up virgin to absuive mother in hyper-time
PusForLunch: it's the second variation on warhol's 15 minutes statement.
PusForLunch: she's almost consuming her 15mins at hyper-speed
YellowGerbil: so is everybody these days
PusForLunch: she only has to do washe d over and o/d at the chelsea / chateau marmont and she's done the whole story, really.
YellowGerbil: marmont definitely
PusForLunch: maybe i meant washed up rather than washed over
PusForLunch: marmont for her i think
YellowGerbil: she'd run screaming from the chelsea. and wouldn't be satisfied with the room
PusForLunch: LOL bad trash. LiZa in the dumpster would freak her out.
PusForLunch: id like briteny and paris to die in one spectacular overdose party
PusForLunch: with a couple of minor celebs like
PusForLunch: linsey lohan
PusForLunch: and oprah
YellowGerbil: actually paris i don't mind some of the time
PusForLunch: a backstreet boy- the so called 'reformed one'.
YellowGerbil: i seceretly identify with her a bit
PusForLunch: Oprah or linzy?
YellowGerbil: yes all the backstreet boys and nsync can go
PusForLunch: no- paris jumped it. i founbd her amusing for a while but she's gone too far
PusForLunch: and like their bodies all found rutting and heroin needles sticking out of their eyes and stuff. oprajh could have a big 'souvenir of oprahs color purple' dildo jammed in her. oprahs dildo of the month club
PusForLunch: paris does make we wonder when we get a drag queen called Chelsea Hotel though....
PusForLunch: paris's dregged out sister.
PusForLunch: hooked on downers and gin, perhaps?
PusForLunch: i think it's going to turn out that chopin was working on a bomb musical when he was at HC. so far only adding clues to a hypothesis
YellowGerbil: very interesting
PusForLunch: but i think he was probably there while he worked on a flop called 'irene' with barbara cook and wally harper.
PusForLunch: i didnt even know chopin did musicals- even though ive heard babs tell the story on an album a zillion times
YellowGerbil: me either
PusForLunch: it only registered since i started thinking about him.
PusForLunch: otherwise- i had an idea for a chelsea hotel video game
PusForLunch: level 1- you are sid vicious and must collect enough shots to get up the strength to find and stab nancy
PusForLunch: level 2- you are janis joplin and must get your bourbon back to your room from the deli without any of the alcoholics in the building stealing it
PusForLunch: you are edie. you have to get it together to run around the hotel selecting an edie suitable outfit and eyeliner. apply eyeliner to go to next level...
PusForLunch: collect enough amphetamine tablets to write 'on the road' and then flee outraged critics and pople who like punctuation in books.
YellowGerbil: lol i think you must make more levels and send it to sony
PusForLunch: be bob dylan- your job is to get as many poeople as possible hooked on heroin before boring the entire lobby to death
