In a recent installment of Watch What Happens Live, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth all but confirmed that she’d be starring in a new musical based on the movie Soapdish.
The Tony- and Emmy-winning actor spilled the tea in response to a caller who asked if rumors were true that she’s slated to headline a West End musical adaptation of the cult classic.
“The rumors are possibly true,” she said, with a less than convincing poker face.
Chenoweth has a long history with the movie, having participated in a 2012 reading of the musical alongside fellow Broadway phenom Jane Krakowski. The presentation also starred John Stamos, Cristin Milioti, Michael Park, Miriam Shor and Adrienne Warren.
The fabulous 1991 film focuses on the backstage drama of a popular soap opera. It starred Sally Field, Kevin Kline, Robert Downey, Jr., Elisabeth Shue, Whoopi Goldberg, Teri Hatcher, Cathy Moriarty, Garry Marshall, Kathy Najimy and the late Carrie Fisher.
