Dolly Wants to Bring Her Life Story to Broadway

The country diva says it's unlikely she'll star in the production herself.

If at first you don't suceed . . .

Dolly Parton had little success converting her smash movie 9 to 5 into a Broadway hit. But that's not deterring her from trying to take the Big Apple by storm again.

“I’m writing my life story as a musical for Broadway,” Dolly tells entertainment news organization WENN. “I probably won’t be in it but I’ll find a way to introduce it somehow, maybe the older me.”

Dolly admits 9 to 5 the musical "didn't make it."

But, she adds, "It didn't sour me. I learned all this stuff from it."

Meanwhile, Dolly returns to the big screen in just a couple of weeks: She co-stars with Queen Latifah in the comedy Joyful Noise.
