It was revealed today that Idina participated in a workshop reading of a developing musical adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film Little Miss Sunshine with fellow Wild Party alum Brian D’Arcy James. As you might recall from our recent Q&A with Idina, she stated her desire to work with him once again. Perhaps this is just a taste of things to come? The musical is slated to premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, California February 15 – March 27, 2011.
NOTE: This does NOT mean Idina will be a part of the public production. Casting in new shows can change a dozen times before it’s finalized, and even if we’re lucky enough to have Idina be a part of the La Jolla production, it does not mean she will be part of the cast if/when it transfers to Broadway. Let’s just all cross our fingers, shall we? Any additional news about this will be posted as soon as it’s made public.
