Dolly Parton’s Life Story Coming to Broadway

By: Brody Scott

Dolly Parton, the celebrated singer, songwriter, and actress tells WENN, "I'm writing my life story as a musical for Broadway. I probably won't be in it but I'll find a way to introduce it somehow, maybe the older me."

Parton plans to write the musical, based on her life story, tracing her journey all the way from humble beginnings as one of twelve children in Tennessee, through decades of country music and worldwide super stardom.

While no debut date has yet been announced, Dolly fans won’t have to wait long to see something new from the legendary performer.

Parton stars in A Joyful Noise with Queen Latifah, in theaters January 13. The two talented leads play dueling choir divas who must join forces to save their gospel-singing group.
