"I'm really excited! I love Michael Mayer!," boasted Egan to Playbill On-Line about her possible next turn for Broadway, which she says is still in negotiations. "It looks like it'll all work out, pending closing a deal, but it's all amicable."
"I love the show and I'm excited to get to do a happy 1920's musical. It's like the carbon copy of Cabaret — it's the polar opposite. The same time period basically, a little earlier," revealed the stage star. "Same haircut, different story."
A Tony Award nominee for her turn in Beauty and the Beast, Egan's other credits include a prior stint as Sally Bowles in Cabaret as well as Triumph of Love, Putting It Together and State Fair. She also provided voices for the Disney film "Hercules," "Spirited Away" and the upcoming release of "Porco Rosso." The songstress will also release her third album which she promises will include a few Broadway tunes as well as music that she grew up with.
Millie's current ingenue Sutton Foster — a Tony Award winner for her performance in the role — is slated to exit the show Feb. 15, 2004.
