Kelsey Grammer Planning Stage Return in Harvey Weinstein Musical
It seems like Kelsey Grammer is done with comedy television and movies- at least for now. According to the LA Times, Grammer is planning to return to the stage in a Harevy Weinstein musical. However, he can't reveal too much yet.
In his interview, Grammer commented, "I did La Cage Aux Folles in New York four years ago. It's when Kayte and I met and fell in love. It's why we got Married on the stage where I did the play. But it was really demanding. You want to lose weight, go do a stage play. You always lose 10 pounds. The next thing for me is a musical. I don't know if it's appropriate to talk about it yet. It's something Harvey Weinstein is doing that'd be next year."

Grammer's main goal is proving that he can do more than just comedy, though he does enjoy it. He played the role of Dr. Frasier Crane for 20 years, first on Cheers and then on Frasier. Recently, he's been picking up roles that involve "twirling [his] proverbial mustache."
It was his role in Boss that really changed his Perception and convinced others in the industry that he could handle more serious roles. He recently played the villan in the new Transformers: Age of Extinction movie. He is also a supporting role in Expendables 3, set to hit theaters Aug 15, and is co-starring in Partners, which will air in August.
Grammer's past Broadway credits include La Cage Aux Folles (2010), Macbeth (2000), Othello (1982), and Macbeth (1981). His Off Broadway credits include Sunday in the Park with George (1983), Quartermaine's Terms (1983), and Plenty (1982).
