Broadway bombshell Megan Hilty may currently have a very special project in the works, but that’s not stopping her from eyeing a return to the Great White Way in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The Smash star told The Daily Beast: “I want do be doing Gentlemen Prefer Blondes...I’m so not done with it.”
Hilty headlined the John Rando helmed Encores! production of Jule Styne and Leo Robin's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in May 2012, playing Lorelei Lee, a role made famous by Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film adaptation of the 1949 musical. Currently expecting her first child with hubby Brian Gallagher, she has a busy summer of concerts ahead of her.
Hilty most recently appeared on NBC’s Sean Saves the World. Prior to that, she portrayed Marilyn Monroe hopeful Ivy Lynn on the Broadway-themed NBC series Smash. She has appeared on the Great White Way in 9 to 5 as Doralee and in Wicked as Glinda.
