On the red carpet at the Critics Choice Awards, Amanda Seyfried confirmed her plans to do a Broadway musical.

"Listen, I wanna go to Broadway. I wanna sing. I think I'm finally getting to that point where it's gonna happen," Seyfried said to E! News.

Last week, it was reported that Seyfried had missed the Golden Globes because she was workshopping a musical adaptation of Thelma and Louise. She continued to tease the show's music and confirmed Evan Rachel Wood's involvement.

"It's as little more rocker. You should hear Evan Rachel Wood sing. I mean, my god," she shared.

A "Thelma & Louise" musical has been in the works since 2021 with director Trip Cullman at the helm, and featuring a book by Halley Feiffer and music by Neko Case. Seyfried's comments on the carpet signal that she has been working on the musical for some time.

"It was this moment that had been ramping up for years and I had to be there. It's a dream," Seyfried revealed. "So I did miss [The Golden Globes] for an incredible reason."

Watch the complete interview clip below, in which Seyfried also shares that she wants to do Broadway because it "scares the hell" out of her.
