Dolly Parton's hoping to make a "Joyful Noise" on Broadway one of these days with a musical about her life.
She tells CNN that she's currently working to make that happen - and she already has an idea on who could play her on the Great White Way.
"I'm working on a musical about my life and I would love for it to get to Broadway," Parton, 65, told CNN. "It's certain to get on stage somewhere. I thought it would be a great way to tell my life story because you can get so many more things in a song. You can tell so many more stories [that way] than [with] just dialogue."
The country legend says there are a lot of people who could portray her in the musical, but there are nonetheless some key requirements.
"I think on stage you've got to have a great voice and someone who's great on stage," Parton said. "I think Kristin Chenoweth is spectacular. 'Cause she's little and she's short."
To accommodate for Parton's infamous bosom, "We could just pad her up a little bit up top," the singer says. "But she'd be great at it."

Excellent blog here! Additionally your site lots up fast! What web host are you the usage of? Can I get your affiliate hyperlink on your host? I wish my website loaded up as fast as yours lol
That would be amazing. I would most certainly see that. Both Dolly and Kristin are amazing woman who have made the world a better place.
Not only could Kristen play the role, it's a role she's already played. Blonde, loud, good-hearted but good at stealing the scenes? Sounds like Glinda in Wicked to me.
YOU ARE RIGHT, I LIVE THE TRUTH......AND IT IS ALWAYS GOOD!
You're a riot. I've read posts you commented on, and I sensed your troll face in the air. HAHA
That must be some good sh!t u'r smoking.
FACT: SHE IS REAL, KIND AND YOU WILL NEVER MEET A BETTER PERSON
IF SHE IS YOUR FRIEND, YOU GOT A FRIEND. BUT NOW DOLLY ITS
TIME TO TAKE CARE OF DOLLY, NOT MANY PEOPLE ON EARTH
I LOVE DOLLY!
You are an idiot!
This woman is disgusting. She looks like the Joker. Thats who should play you Dolly! Oh wait he already did........The Dark Knight!!!!
She is the first to admit that she has had a lot of work and that it has impacted her looks. She seems sweet, genuine and open. Not to mention she clearly has, aside from talent, a great business sense to be able to build her park and her entertainment career. You don't know her, and for that matter neither do I, but damn, leave the woman alone. Live and let live.
Say what you want about her looks, she does have an amazing life story! It's unfortunate that she never had kids because she loves them! I live in Branson, MO where one of her Dixie Stampede shows is located. She has a program called the "Imagination Library." Each and every kid who signs up gets a FREE book from Dolly in the mail each month from the time they are born until they're five years old. Only a very special person could be behind a program like that.
@Evel-wow, that was a blast from the past! lol.
She looks like Lady Elaine from Mr Rogers Neighborhood.
@be quiet- yep, you are right. I only read the original post before u click on the comments. My bad!
that's OK girlfriend!
She should play herself. She still around.
I can see Kristin playing Dolly. I think she'll have to wear an extremely padded bra, though, to pull off the look.
That's what the last line of the article says. Not too sly, Sadie.
If ever a person deserves wealth and fame, it is Dolly. Her story is incredible because she did it on her own without wealthy family. She raised her brothers and sisters and even now Dollywood has created a lot of jobs for the locals. She does a lot of philanthropic work and she does it anonymously. That's pretty darn special in my book.
if she does it anonymously, then how do you know about it?
Why all the hate? Dolly seems like a nice person.
Because it's the Internet, Bill. Anonymity is a test of integrity and character that most people fail.
@tad- dude, now that was funny!
A mannequin could play Dolly. Fake hair, fake lips, fake boo bs, pounds of makeup. Does anyone actually know what Dolly really looks like?
YOU FORGOT SHE HAS REAL TALENT
