NEWS FLASH: Dolly Parton to Bring Life Story to Broadway
"I'm writing my life story as a musical for Broadway. I probably won't be in it but I'll have a way to introduce it somehow. I'll be involved -- maybe I'll play the older me or something," she says.
Parton commented that her experience as the composer-lyricist of the musical 9 to 5, adapted from the movie she starred in, hasn't turned her off from Broadway. "The show didn't make it, but it didn't sour me," she notes. "I learned a lot of stuff from it!"
