Kellie Pickler Floats the Idea of a Tammy Wynette Broadway Musical

Not sure how to feel about this…what are your thoughts?

BUZ'N @ 102.9

When Kellie Pickler won Dancing with the Stars last year, fans found out that the North Carolina singer was not only a top-notch vocalist but a skilled dancer as well. So to hear that she’s now interested in possibly taking her talent to Broadway actually makes sense.

Pickler told Country Weekly that ever since her appearance on Dancing with the Stars, she’s “been wanting to do Broadway so bad,” which would allow her to “throw together two of my passions — dance and music.” And not just any Broadway production, she has a clear idea in mind for what she thinks would make for an epic production: the life and music of the late Tammy Wynette.

“I want them to do like a Tammy Wynette Broadway musical! I know Dolly Parton has her Broadway shows and I think if anybody lived a country song, it’s Tammy.”

Kinky Boots review

Simon Parris: Man in Chair

There is nothing like seeing a brand new musical you know nothing about. And nothing like seeing a hit, freshly-opened Broadway show in a full house on a Saturday night. Unique subject matter, terrific music by the legendary Cyndi Lauper and an incredible breakout performance by the leading man all contribute to a fun, lively night at the theatre.

Broadway’s Kinkiest New Musical

Szcz The Day

Previews of Broadway’s kinkiest, new musical Kinky Boots began March 3, 2013. Kinky Boots has music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper and a story line adapted from the book by Harvey Fierstein.

It’s based on the true story behind the 2005 film, telling the story of a struggling shoemaker and his drag queen business partner, who come together to save the business by inventing a rather unusual design of footwear.

But boots aside, the musical is really about two young men coming from opposite worlds and figuring out they actually have a lot in common.

And it’s this message that touches audience members the most.

Kinky Boots is expected to make its official Broadway debut on April 4, 2013 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
