The exiting View host may be eyeing another Broadway role. OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Donnell has previously starred in Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fiddler on the Roof,Ã¢â‚¬? Ã¢â‚¬Å“GreaseÃ¢â‚¬? and Ã¢â‚¬Å“SeussicalÃ¢â‚¬? (and produced Ã¢â‚¬Å“Taboo,Ã¢â‚¬? but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll do her a favor and forget about that). After yesterdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s show, according to The New York Times, the South Nyack funny woman told the studio audience that she would be interested in joining the cast of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Les Miserables,Ã¢â‚¬? which was revived last fall on Broadway, in the role of Madame Thenardier, the bawdy, over-the-top inn keeperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wife.
The paper reports that producers of the show have approached OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Donnell about the role, but nothing has been finalized.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We think she would make a terrific Madame Thenardier and would love to have her join the show at some point in the future,Ã¢â‚¬? said Marc Thibodeau, a spokesman for the production.
