Bridget Jones’s Diary: The Musical!?
First, Bridget Jones’s Diary was a book. Then it was a movie. Then another movie. And, as rumor has it, another movie. We started shaking our heads when we heard about a possible Bridget Jones TV show. And now, alas, it’s going to be a musical. There’s no word yet on who will be playing Bridget—Renée Zellweger did prove she can sing in “Chicago.” We do know, however, that Lily Allen is doing music for the show. Plus, the director and choreographer of “Billy Elliot,” Stephen Daldry and Peter Darling, are also on board. The musical is in the workshop stage and could open in London’s West End as early as next year. Would you go see it if you took a trip across the pond? [NYMag.com]
