Will screen star Melanie Griffith fly into the Tony-winning revival of Pippin? The answer is yes, if you ask the blonde bombshell herself.
Griffith, who made her Broadway debut in 2003 as Roxie Hart in Chicago (which has the same lead producer as Pippin ) told Indiewire she’s eyeing a Broadway return. “I'm going to do a lot of things,” the actress said of her future plans. “I'm going to do Pippin on Broadway in January. It's not about my career now. It's just about finding great work and having a good time. My kids are almost grown. I'm getting divorced [from Antonio Banderas]. I'm just happy. I'm really joyful. Life is good.”
Griffith earned an Academy Award nomination for Working Girl. Her other notable film credits include Nobody’s Fool, Another Day in Paradise, Celebrity and RKO 281.
Griffith would undoubtedly play Berthe in Pippin. The role earned Andrea Martin a 2013 Tony Award and is currently being played by Priscilla Lopez.
