Britney Spears Considered for West End Lead

March 28, 2008 08:14:09 GMT


After making a successful appearance in the TV sitcom "How I Met Your Mother", Britney Spears is set to expand her acting career. Reports said that the singer has been considered to act on the West End theater stage for a role in an award winning play written by Tennessee Williams, "A Street Car Named Desire".

Britney is considered to be given the role of Blanche DuBois, a pretentious, fading relic of the Old South. "Britney's been on the list for this for some time but until recently was considered too risky. Her appearance on 'How I Met Your Mother' changed all that. She had poise, timing and a real flair. She may be a bit too young for the role but she is perfect to embody the tragic spirit of Blanche, who uses alcohol to mask her pain," so said a source to the Daily Star.
