Catherine Zeta-Jones to play Cleopatra
Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is planning to return to Broadway as Cleopatra in a new rock and roll musical.
The 42-year-old is developing a stage show about the Ancient Egyptian queen with her "Traffic" director Steven Soderbergh. "I just finished a movie with Steven Soderbergh and we have an idea - actually it was for a movie - to play Cleopatra.
It's a rock and roll musical movie, but we think it would just be fantastic on Broadway," dailystar.co.uk quoted Zeta-Jones as saying. The actress won the Tony Award for best leading actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Desiree in "A Little Night Music" in 2009. She's currently showing off her vocal talents in the Hollywood adaptation of another Broadway show, "Rock of Ages".
