Yeah, will echo that it seems like an extraordinary failure in management to not notice problems after the Ellen fiasco. A “You had one job” situation.
Enjoy her upcoming final album guys...Then, during a staff meeting in January 2023 following the show’s holiday hiatus, they say Clarkson revealed her desire to head back to the East Coast because she said she wanted to be closer to her family and be able to pursue Broadway and other passions.
I would love her to do Broadway, although I'm hard-pressed to think of what role I'd like to see her in... It's a shame Dolly was (very successfully) revived so recently, because I think she'd make such a meal of that role/score.She’s kill on Broadway though. Her voice is so versatile that the possibilities are endless.
I’m almost scared to bring up Josh Groban but her duet with him is spellbinding.
I worked a bit on Waitress in the VERY early stages and as a result sort of block it out (see above re: toxic environments), but you're right she'd be great in that.The obvious choice would be Waitress of course.
They could probably do an entire revival of Annie Get Your Gun around her.
Regardless of the employees saying that she's not part of the problem or this kind of environment being the norm, it's still majorly disappointing. It feels bizarre too because we just dealt with this with Ellen, and it felt like this show (which, mind you, isn't even five years old yet) was being marketed as the opposite. It's still her face and her brand at the end of the day which is leaving me a bit unsettled.
I was just thinking about what this might mean for Favourite Kind of High's announcement but looks like Atlantic didn't get the memo. I hope NBC is able to rectify the situation because it's a shitty look for everyone involved.
