Always in the news, Britney Spears is back in the headlines for theatrical reasons as US producers are apparently considering casting her as Sandy in the current Broadway revival of Grease. The musical move would seem to make more sense than the rumour that surfaced a couple of months ago – that the troubled pop star had been offered the role of Blanche DuBois in a West End revival of Tennessee Williams’ classic 1947 drama A Streetcar Named Desire (See The Goss, 27 Mar 2008). Spears has previously been quoted in the media saying she’d like to appear in the West End in a musical (See The Goss, 6 Nov 2003).
