Aretha Franklin Has Turned Her Attention To Broadway As She Plans A Major Life Story Event.
The Queen of Soul is already in negotiations for a possible film and TV mini-series about her life, and now she reveals she is talking to actress and director Marsha Mason about a stageshow.
She tells Billboard.com, "I would like to see it be a dramatic musical. I loved The Motown Musical; it was so great. I think the timing is very good now, especially behind Jersey Boys, Carole King (Beautiful)... Gloria Estefan has come to Broadway now. Why not Aretha?"
