“Susan Boyle: The Musical” is going to travel all around the United Kingdom and Ireland in 2012, and it looks like there is going to be a special guest to accompany it — the “Britain’s Got Talent” singing sensation herself.
In a new statement, Boyle announced that she will make a guest appearance in the closing act of the musical — though it is unclear as to whether or not she will appear during all of the announced dates:
“I am thrilled to be a part of the musical about my life story and very much looking forward to stepping on stage and performing with the cast … It is an honest portrayal of my life and has been a cathartic process to be involved in.”
This will mark the first stage appearance by Boyle since the “Britain’s Got Talent” tour back in 2009 — though she has appeared on a number of TV programs including “Dancing with the Stars” this past Tuesday.
Do you think this is an incredibly idea, and do you think it could be a prime precursor to some sort of proper tour by Susan moving forward?
