While 'Sweet Charity' isn't the BEST musical out there, Ms. Spears was LUCKY to even be mentioned as a potential STAR of any Broadway show...that show included. While I am overjoyed she is not going to be in the musical, does the act of Spears-Federline turning down Broadway make the Great White Way even more dead than people thought?

Just something to think about...

Never, i think she realized that it would be career suicide for her..... if anything i think Broadway is keeping some sort of prestige

According to today's Post, Mr. Britney Spears said no.

I bet if she had done it she would have made Donna Murphy's attendance record look like Harvey Fierstein's. Maybe that's cruel and preemptively (and, at this point, purely hypothetically) judgmental, but I doubt she would have the stamina or discipline for that many shows per week in a dance-heavy show.

Really? Have you seen her concerts? Looked at her concert tour schedules? This would be a piece of cake for her, stamina-wise. No traveling, and much lighter dancing than she's used to.

I think we should all just be glad that, for the time being at least, Britney Spears will not be on a Broadway stage.

they probably didn't offer her enough. At least she got a free trip to NYC!

Her website stated that she did not want to uproot her family to NY after having just bought her new home. She wants to do the family thing for now but was happy to have been approached.

She probably realized she wouldn't be able to lip sync.

Uh, you guys do realize that Broadway is still seen as a step down by a good portion of pop culture? There's a reason most "stars" who tread the boards either came from theater and never really stopped, or are second-rate and past-it TV or movie "personalities" who need any boost they can get. The latter group doesn't look at it as an honor; they look at it as a desperation move.

I find that amusing---there is nothing harder, or less compensated, than live theater. She's probably just afraid of flopping! (and a well-founded fear it is, too!)

Yes, that's how I can tell that in the future I will drink orange juice.

*drinks some*

But do you also know the motivations of people whom you've never met for drinking their orange juice? That's true clairvoyance, and it seems to run rampant here.

Wrong. Theater is viewed as an artistic Step-Up. Madonna, Julia Roberts, Anthony Banderas, Nicole Kidman, Puff Doody. None of them are second rate or past-it.

as thankful as I am that she is not going to do it, i think it would have been interesting to see her take on it and how she handeled it.
