[Ed. – Sounds hilarious.]
If Tina Fey can do it, why not her 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin? And if their SNLcommander-in-chief can honcho her Broadway show, why not his as well?
Those were the questions raised Monday when Baldwin told Howard Stern he has Broadway in his sights for a solo show based on his Emmy-winning impersonation of President Donald Trump, with Lorne Michaels producing. Michaels is also producing Fey’s musical adaptation of Mean Girls, slated to arrive on Broadway in the spring.
Baldwin was interviewed on Stern’s Sirius XM program to promote You Can’t Spell America Without Me, his new book, co-written with Kurt Andersen. The parody purports to tell the “really tremendous inside story” of the president’s first year in office.
“We may take the book and make it into a one-man show on Broadway,” Baldwin said, adding that the book was written with the blessing of Michaels, who controls the rights to the impersonation. “What Lorne did do is give me permission to write this book,” Baldwin said. “My rendering of (Trump) is his intellectual property.”
