Dolly Parton Getting Her Musical On!

dolly parton gets her musical on

We're so excited to hear about all these projects that Dolly's working on!

Back in November, we learned that Dolly Parton is planning a brand new album, as well as a worldwide tour, and NOW it looks like she's also planning a "gospel-tinged children's musical!"

The musical will be a semi-autobiographical play about Dolly's "upbringing in Tennessee."

But there's more! Dolly MAY also do a revival of Hello, Dolly!, country-style.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"In 1964, when I went to New York for the first time with my high school class, I only got to the movies - it was to see It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and it was a real big deal for me. But I also remember the show Hello, Dolly! was just coming out at the time, and there were signs for it all over the place, and I thought they were welcoming me to the city."

"Later I wanted to do a country-fied version of that show - the same songs, but with a bluegrass flavour. It never happened."

You should DEFINITELY do both of these shows, bb. We'd be very curious to see your country-fied interpretation of Hello, Dolly!

Will U check out these Dolly Parton musicals if/when they come out?

    As bizarre as it sounds, a country Hello Dolly could actually be pretty good. Manipulate some orchestration and reset in Charleston or Atlanta - doable. And she'd definitely be good for the part.

    Sometimes Dolly is her own worst enemy. She is GREAT but she is also stubborn….she wants to produce her own work and not work with others…many record pros have offered to work with her but she wants to do it herself…I wish she would let others help…she stuck to her guns and released "Backwoods Barbie" last year and it was mostly dreadful.
    Do you all remember when she was pushing for a t.v. show about an angel who comes back to earth and does good deeds? (hello…Touched By An Angel has been DONE Dolly)…I love Dolly but , really, that idea was beyond lame.
    Now she wants to do a musical?? I say get outside your comfort zone and let others make you shine Dolly! BTW…happy 65th tomorrow!

    She looks fantastic in that pic. A country Hello, Dolly is actually a good idea- though it needs to be cut down and not be too long- that was the problem with the movie.

    Love her though!
