When you are someone like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm], you are someone that is also awesome. Katy proves this time and time again by doing awesome things. Let’s list some so you get the idea. Free concerts for fans, cute named fragrances (Purr, Meow), hosting SNL, marrying Russell Brand, you get it! Let’s add this to the list, shall we: staring in a Broadway show!
[photogallerylink id=130007 align=left]According to movie mogul and producer, Harvey Weinstein, who is responsible for Broadway shows like “Billy Madison: The Musical” and “The Producers,” he thinks Katy Perry would be perfect for the part of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Marilyn Monroe[/lastfm] in the movie turned musical. That is, if the movie works, of course.
“If the movie works, I would try to make it a musical and I would go to Katy first. I think she can play Marilyn on the Broadway stage… I think she would be amazing,” Weinstein told reporters.
In fact, Katy is so tied to this film and story already that Weinstein credits some of the box office success to Katy even though she isn’t in the movie.
The trailer featured a remix of Katy’s latest, “The One That Got Away” and when she tweeted out the news suddenly there was a boost of activity around the movie. “Katy posted about it on her Twitter and Facebook (accounts) and the next thing you know 250,000 people have downloaded the trailer in an hour,” he added.
Well I vote ‘Yes’ on the musical.
