Paula Abdul To Star on Broadway?

According to Radaronline, Paula Abdul is heading to Broadway. She’ll be doing a several-weeks stint in the 2008 Award winning musical, The Heights.

“Paula will take over for Priscilla Lopez in one of the leading roles. It’s always been Abdul’s dream to star on Broadway, ” an inside source tells exclusively. “Paula has been in talks with producers for several weeks and made a special overnight trip to New York on March 17 just to see the successful Broadway show.”

High School Musical producer Kenny Ortega appears to be the one who rallied for Abdul to get some stage time. “Seems as if Ortega wants Paula involved in this project, ” the insider tells “Ortega is hot to have her choreograph the film version.”

Reportedly, Paula is in talks for two dance-related TV shows.

One potential opportunity is for NBC, and involves large choreographed dance numbers.  Paula will be working with Michael Jackson choreographer, Kenny Ortega, on that one.

The other project is Got to Dance, a series CBS just picked up.  This British import is an all-ages all-genres dance. The network has expressed an interest in hiring Paula for a spot on the judges’ panel.
