Well, as of today it is official that Miller will be doing jail time.

Rosie's tweet was a terrific and comic response to the news.

But the more I think about it--I bet Mark Shaiman & Scott Wittman would come up with a great score!

That actually sounds like a musical I'd watch. Better than some shows running right now...

If this should come to fruition, please let them get someone who can sing, dance, and act. Or at least two out of three. But please, not Rosie who can't do any of them.

Rosie and I share something in common:  we each have survived heart attacks (one for her, three for me).  She has lost weight and now enjoys a healthy lifestyle.  Her work informing women of the risks they face for having a heart attack ... and of sharing her own story ... has been nothing short of inspiring.  I very much admire the woman.

So, yeah, I would LOVE to see her perform on the Broadway stage.

It's wonderful that you and Rosie have survived some awful health scares. However, that isn't how casting is done.

Rosie makes a tweet and people think this is in the works?    

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

LOL I had the same thought. 

Why is Miller doing jail time?

Overall. Please, God, no to this.

False claims of bankruptcy.  She tried to hide 750k she got from Lifetime.

There is a video of Abby watching and commenting on performers (children and teens) at Pineapple studios somewhere in England I believe.  In that video (the end) she talks about a broadway show and all I could do was laugh.  This was in 2014 I believe? Could be wrong but this was 3 years ago (if I am not mistaken) and nothing has ever come of it.  Doubtful anything will happen in the future.
