Macy Gray & Will Smith Make Musicals????
Date: 17 February 2005
It seems that American R&B singer Macy Gray has set her sights on the theatre. After the success of her first album On How Life Is, and the single “I Try”, Gray’s subsequent recordings have been less well received. Now, there are whispers that she’s planning a comeback with a musical, which she’s both written and plans to star in. Meanwhile, actor-cum-rapper Will Smith reckons that his 1999 action movie Wild Wild West, which proved a flop at cinema box offices, could fare better at theatre box offices. According to media reports, Smith thinks Wild Wild West would adapt well as a musical. Perhaps his co-star from the film, Kenneth Branagh, would be interested in reprising his role as the evil Dr Arliss Loveless and giving Smith a few tips on stage technique along the way.
