Clive Davis Wants Anne Hathaway To Play Eliza Doolittle On Broadway

February 20, 2013 / Posted by:

In between talking shit about Kelly Clarkson and announcing his love for coochie and cock, Clive Davies writes in his new memoir that he’s working on a big Broadway revival of My Fair Lady. Clive has always wanted to produce a Broadway musical and now his dream might come true, because he recently got the stage rights to My Fair Lady. Anne Hathaway is currently spending her days working with Coach Taylor Swift on her OHMYGAWDMYNIPSEXPLODEDICANBELIEVEIWON face for when she wins the Oscar on Sunday, but once she’s done with that, Clive wants her to play Eliza Doolittle in his big revival. Oh, wouldn’t that be barferly? According to Playbill, Clive writes this in his book:

“I always wanted to produce a Broadway show, and I’ve never done it. I’m hopeful we will prepare and finalize everything this year to bring My Fair Lady next year to Broadway with a stellar cast. I don’t want to jinx myself, but we’re in discussions with two magnificent performers and a wonderful director to do that. I was always hoping that the tradition of great musicals giving birth to songs that are part of the fabric of our culture would continue. But that has not happened. We’ve had hit Broadway shows, but the scores have not really been up to that golden-era tradition.

So since that has not occurred, I really want to make sure that the greatest musical of all time — which to me is My Fair Lady — can show once again why a classic can be as meaningful half a century later as it was when it originally opened. I look forward to that.”

Clive says that he wants Anne to play Eliza and Colin Firth to play ‘Enry ‘Iggins, and he’s hoping Bartlett Sher will direct.

Anne Hathaway is every high school drama student I’ve ever met mashed into one person. She probably does vocal warmups before she lets out an orgasm wail and if Lea Michele wasn’t already the real-life Rachel Berry, I’d say Anne Hathaway is the real-life Rachel Berry. So yodeling on Broadway is her destiny! The only Anne I want to see as Eliza Doolittle is Anne Burrell, but the role of Eliza Doolittle is still perfect for Anne Hathaway. My Fair Lady is one of the ultimate makeover musicals and Anne is pretty much the queen of makeovers in movies. It’s not an Anne Hathaway project unless bitch gets a makeover in it.

Here’s Anne working the Justin Bieber circa 2011 hair at the Costume Designer Guild Awards last night.
