Mariah Carey is in talks to appear in and write material for an upcoming Broadway musical. Good news for Mariah Carey’s fans that loved her in Glitter, mildly ominous news for the rest of us.
“I don’t want to mention anything definitive until things are signed,” she told MTV, “but there’s a very big company that just signed on to develop the project with me.”
Carey also added she will contribute new tracks to the musical and will lend songs from her 1994 Christmas album.
But don’t look for Mariah on a Broadway marquee just yet: The singer hopes the project will be a feature-length film before going to the stage.
“It’s probably going to be a movie first,” she said. “I don’t want to say a television movie, because it’s not like a cheesy network movie, but then it’s going to be made for the Broadway production.”
Well that’s good — we were worried for a moment that the image of pop music’s classiest diva might be tainted by a “cheesy” project.
