Will Katy Perry Play Marilyn Monroe On Broadway?

Katy Perry has had quite the year, there is no doubt about that. She tied Michael Jackson for most #1’s from a single album and now has another Top 10 hit with The One That Got Away under her belt tying the likes of Janet Jackson and George Michael. Now, Katy could be joining another legend if someone has their way.

Harvey Weinstein, who is responsible for the new film My Week With Marilyn, thinks that it is going to do so well in theaters that it will spawn off a Broadway musical. Who has he tapped to play Marilyn? None other than Katy herself. Here is what he told E! Online:

“If the movie works, I would try to make it a musical and I would go to Katy first. I think she can play Marilyn on the Broadway stage… I think she would be amazing.”

Wow! To be honest, I don’t know if Katy Perry would have exactly been my first choice with all of the amazing and talented stage performers out there. I guess we’ll know more about her acting skills when she hosts SNL this coming December with musical guest Robyn. Katy has portrayed the icon recently in a German commercial for ProSieben. Check out the TV spot below.

So, what do you think. Would Katy Perry play a convincing Marilyn Monroe on the Broadway stage or should they leave the Great White Way to those who know it best? Sound off below!

    She’s a bit coarse, tbh. I think someone like Carey Mulligan would be perfect, but I’m not sure she can sing.
