Parker And Broderick Developing Play About Gossip
Former SEX + THE CITY star SARAH JESSICA PARKER and husband MATTHEW BRODERICK are hoping to star together in a play about celebrity gossip on the Broadway stage.
DON'T FOLLOW ME, I'M LOST, TOO features a husband-and-wife team who write gossip columns for a New York City tabloid.
Parker has been looking for a play for her and her husband to star in since her Sex And The City stint ended.
A theatre executive says, "She's been saying to producers and theatre owners, 'Find us a play!'"
Parker took part in a staged reading of the play on Monday (23JAN06) which was attended by a select group of Broadway insiders.
Broderick's schedule didn't allow him to attend the reading, but Tony-winning actor ALAN CUMMING stepped in to read opposite the actress.
In the comedic play, written by DOUGLAS CARTER BEANE, the couple create non-existent celebrities who attend non-existent parties. Things begin to spin out of control when movie studios try to track down the fake celebrities to star in films.
Beane says, "It's all about the wonderful world of tabloid journalism and celebrity culture."
