It was recently announced that Kristen Bell will star as Sheila in the upcoming Hollywood Bowl production of Hair. (The cast also includes Broadway's Hunter Parrish as Claude and "Glee" star Amber Riley as Dionne.) This news, coupled with Bell's stellar vocal performance in the Academy Award-winning animated film "Frozen," made us wonder: In what other stage roles would our readers like to see Bell?
Bell made her Broadway debut in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 2001. She was later seen in the 2002 production of The Crucible and was a guest performer at the 60th Annual Tony Awards in 2006. Apart from providing the voice for the sassy Princess Anna in Disney's "Frozen," she has starred in numerous films, including "Reefer Madness," "Burlesque" and the title role in the 2008 comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
