Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Funny Girl
This would be ideal because Funny Girl is the story of vaudeville performer Fanny Brice, and Lady Gaga’s antics are one of the last remaining vestiges of American vaudeville. Plus, she and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are one smoldering couple.
Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in Chicago
If today were the ’90s, this would be merely dream casting. But since it’s 2013, these stars just might be available.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez in West Side Story
Because it’s perfect. Fans never get tired of crying over this relationship.
Cee Lo and Beyoncé in Porgy & Bess
Well, Audra McDonald is the Queen of Broadway, and Beyoncé is the Queen of the World, so by the laws of parallelism, when the world watches Porgy & Bess on NBC, Beyoncé will be playing the same role as Audra. Cee Lo as Porgy is a tie-in for The Voice.
Jimmy Fallon and Jennifer Lawrence in The Music Man
Jimmy Fallon could sell us anything, including an imaginary boys’ band (I said a boys’ band, do you hear me?) And if Silver Linings Playbook taught us anything, it’s to dream big. So Jennifer Lawrence as Marian the Librarian.
