Kristin Chenoweth Might Say "Hello" To Hello Dolly!

Shut the backstage door!

It's been recently reported that Kristin Chenoweth is in discussions to play Dolly Levi in a multimillion dollar Broadway revival of Hello Dolly! Wicked!

Apparently, the role has been offered in the past to Queen Latifah, and Bette Midler, who turned it down because she didn't want to do a grueling 8 performances a week!

However, it looks like the Popular singer seems to be the most popular candidate for the job, as Kristin has made it crystal clear that she'd like to do Dolly sometime in the next decade.

Well, it looks like that dream might come 8 years early, as the revival is expected to happen within the next 2 years!

We're so excited at the prospect of Elphaba being the alpha babe in Hello Dolly!, and changing the titular role for good!

Dolly Parton Getting Her Musical On!

Filed under: Music MinuteDolly Parton

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?

Yet Another Reason To Love Matt Bomer!

Good lord, he truly is the total package, isn't he?!

Check out the incredibly SEKSI - and apparently multi-talented - Matt Boner Bomer performing the classic song It Only Takes A Moment from Hello, Dolly with Kelli O'Hara, as part of a tribute to composer Jerry Herman at the Kennedy Center Honors (above)!

Swoon just doesn't even do him justice anymore!

It's more like MELT! And lick!
