Britney Spears Eyed for Broadway role
(exposay.com) - Britney Spears the Broadway star? The pop singer, and recently TV guest actress, has been reportedly offered the lead female role in the West End production of "A Streetcar Named Desire."
A source reveals, "Britney's been on the list for this for some time but was considered too risky until recently. Her appearance in the American TV show 'How I Met Your Mother' changed all that. She had poised, timing and real flair."
"We wanted her for Blanche because, even though she's technically too young to play her, who else could embody this fallen Southern Belle so well?"
Spears, 26, recently gave boost to the said sitcom's rating after she successfully played a dorky receptionist. Her performance was a hit among viewers and critics alike.
The source adds, "She's living out the story, so to harness that on stage would be amazing for an audience to see - and cathartic for Britney, too."
