In a recent interview, Michael Urie, who plays Mark St James, the camp PA to villainous magazine boss Wilhelmina Slater (played by Vanessa Williams), revealed: “hey do want to do an Ugly Betty musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush hush … I think it would be great and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers … It would be fun for us to do it for a while and then they could get real people in.”
Urie added: “They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work.” But could they negotiate West End options for the TV stars?
