Let's hope Lily Allen got her ass in gear and finished writing the lyrics to the upcoming Bridget Jones musical, because we're hearing they've already staged the production's first workshop reading!
Original author Helen Fielding is responsible for the stage adaptation's script, and the team behind Billy Elliot - director Stephen Daldry, choreographer Peter Darling, and associate director Julian Webber - want to have the production ready for London's West End by next year!
All right, Lily, you're playing with the big boys now, so take whatever mild talent you've got and make some solid tunes! This has the potential to be really good!
What do U think?? Would U go see a musical version of Bridget Jones's Diary??
