'Finding Dolly' Contest
NASHVILLE, TN - Iconic singer and performer Dolly Parton is known for her unconventional approach, and her latest endeavor is no exception. She is considering an unconventional method to cast actors for an upcoming musical based on her life. Parton shared her thoughts, saying, "Right now, I'm working on my life story as a musical, and so going on Broadway and opening my show on Broadway, that's been a biggie in my mind for many, many years. That'd be the one that I want to make certain I get done while I'm still kicking, while I'm around to stay involved in it."
