Ugly Betty The Broadway Musical?

May 28, 2008 / Posted by:

Ugly Betty” is about to get gayer. Like that’s even possible. Michael Urie who plays Marc on the show told a British radio station that an “Ugly Betty the Musical” might be in the works sometime soon.

He said, “They do want to do an “Ugly Betty” musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush-hush. I think it would be great, and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers. I think it would be fun for us to do it for a while, and then they could get real people in. They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to do a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work.”

Why did I picture him saying this without taking one breath?

Anyway, this is what happens in the world of show business. They strike gold with a show like UB and then find ways to completely fucking ruin it. The Broadway musical will be followed by a reality show, theme park ride and then a line of ponchos.

Although, if they insist on doing a Broadway musical they should get Jordin Sparks to play Betty. Every time I see Jordin on TV, I immediately confuse her with America Ferrera. They might be the same person.
