Smiths' Rep Slams Broadway Reports
Hollywood couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's representative has slammed reports the stars are to make their Broadway debuts in A Streetcar Named Desire.
Earlier this week (beg12Jul10), the New York Post reported the pair has been approached to play Stanley and Stella Kowalski in the Tennessee Williams play, which previously starred a then-unknown Marlon Brando and Jessica Tandy in the late 1940s.
They were reportedly set to appear in the show's revival next year (11), but a spokesperson has now refuted the speculation, telling GossipCop.com, "There is no truth (to the reports) whatsoever."
The Smiths have been a fixture on the New York City theatre scene since they signed on as co-producers of Tony Award-winning musical Fela! last year (09).
