First it was Anjelica Huston, now Bernadette Peters!?!
Oh yeah…and Nick Jonas is in there too. LOL!
In the upcoming NBC series, all three play a part in the magical world of Broadway.
The synopsis reads:
The plot will follow follow an out-of-town tryout of a Broadway musical, and centers around a songwriting team who write a musical about Marilyn Monroe based on an offhanded remark from an assistant. They post a showstopping number on YouTube. When it's a viral hit, a producer (Anjelica Huston) who's looking to recapture success long past decides to produce the musical. There are two choices to play Marilyn - Karen (Katharine McPhee), a talented young newcomer, and Ivy (Megan Hilty), a theater veteran. At the heart of the show are the musical's composer Tom (Christian Borle), who is gay, and the lyricist Julia (Debra Messing), who is somewhat against the idea of a Marilyn Monroe-themed musical.
Sounds very promising! Especially with our seasoned goddesses!!!
What do U think? Besides the obvious pairing Debra Messing with a gay guy line…
