Will Beyoncé Play Glinda in The Wiz?

And the gays faint.



Yes, if you click your heels three times and sing, “Flawless,” Beyoncé might play Glinda in the upcoming live television production of the hit musical The Wiz.

Several reports are indicating that the Queen herself is in talks to play everyone’s favorite good fairy in the Fatima Robinson-choregoraphed NBC staging. Harvey Fierstein is adapting the musical’s book for TV, with Kenny Leon directing the production.
