Home Celebrity (Update) Exclusive: Kirstie Alley Trying for Broadway Debut

Exclusive: Kirstie Alley–newly slimmed down, but still a dieting Scientologist–is planning a Broadway debut. I’m told that Kirstie has agreed to do a three month run in a new comedy, set for spring. The play would be produced by Lance Bass, formerly of NSync, and would possibly run at the Roundabout Theater. The Roundabout does short runs of new plays in its subscription series. Alley is only available for three months because she’s hopeful that her next TV series will be picked up in May and start production in the summer for a fall 2012 debut. I’m told that Bass and the producers are in “negotiations” with the Roundabout, which would bring the play to the old Studio 54 space. Alley–still running her Scientology-connected Organic Liaisons diet program –has a pilot for a new TV series shooting soon. Her last show, an A&E reality series, lasted one season. UPDATE: The Roundabout says the play is not coming to them. Stay tuned…
