Debbie Reynolds Coming Back To Broadway?


Yes, kids, Princess Leia’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, is considering an offer to replace Angela Lansbury as Madame Armfeldt in the Broadway revival of A Little Night Music.

Can the peppy, old-time movie star (and the original Jennifer Aniston, victim-wise) give good wheelchair action?

Can she say spicy, know-it-all lines directed at fools and children?

Could she convince as a one-time courtesan who spent glamour time in castles, villas, and palaces?

I have no idea, but I love Debbie in everything–even way down deep in Agnes Moorehead’s psyche–and would absolutely love to see this happen.

Especially if Carrie Fisher replaced Catherine Zeta-Jones!
