Chenoweth Joins “Death Becomes Her” Musical

Robert Zemeckis’ iconic 1992 black comedy “Death Becomes Her” is being turned into a stage musical with Kristin Chenoweth set to play Meryl Streep’s role of Madeline Ashton.

Universal Theatrical Group is developing the project which follows a fading actress sets out on a quest to regain her youth, one that has unexpectedly macabre supernatural consequences.

No creative team for the stage version has been set, nor has any production timeline been mapped out. Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis and Isabella Rosselini co-starred in the original film.
