Post Paula Abdul to star on broadway in "In the Heights"
Quote:
Paula Abdul is heading to Broadway for her next big gig!

With a move showing stunt casting in it's finest, Paula will be starring in the musical In The Heights for a several week engagement. Insiders say that she was out in New York last week to finalize the deal and see the show live.

Paula will be taking over one of the leading lady roles from Pricilla Lopez.

This is exciting for you, bb! We can't wait to hear how you do!

Interesting to say the least.

Seriously? I thought maybe she could fit Daniella, but not Camilla!

No, the ONLY role she'd be able to take is Camilla. Daniella's singing is FAR beyond her limits. She might be good. Who knows?

So it's coming to this.....casting big name celebrities to keep the show afloat...

Maybe she'll be good. Maybe not. We'll see.

Could In the Heights be the next Chicago with all of the stunt casting?

seriously. I think that in the heights is a kind of show that can float itself.

It's just stunt casting and honestly I don't think it's a big enough part to make any difference in the quality of the show. I don't think she'll necessarily bomb it but it will be interesting to see "enough"

For those of you who missed it, Playbill reported that the rumor of Paula Abdul's casting was very much untrue. Crisis averted.
