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?
