I just watched parts of the Girlie Show and now I'm watching the WTG show and I can't believe they're only 6 years apart! It's incredible how busy those years were and how much she changed and evolved during that period. Wish I could have seen both shows live. And BA of course.

She was 40.

Its already a struggle for established successful actresses post-40 to get decent roles in Hollywood, let alone Madonna as brilliant as Evita was.

Had she of had Evita happend in 1990 she might have stood a chance.

But Evita was a musical. I don't understand why some fans still think directors and producers in Hollywood would be desperate to snap her up following Evita? 

It want the basis for offering her a brilliant serious role....

But she was on the right track. That was a serious role that showed people she can act. I think she had a very good chance.

Well, she almost made 'Chicago' and then 'The music of the heart'(originally titled '50violins', she was replaced by Meryl Streep).

Madonna plays ‘Chicago’

Apparently not yet tired of bringing Broadway musical roles to the bigscreen, “Evita” star Madonna has signed to star alongside Goldie Hawn in Miramax Films’ screen adaptation of “Chicago.”

Madonna will play Velma Kelly, the tough jailmate of Hawn’s character Roxie Hart. The casting had been anticipated (Daily Variety, April 18).

Miramax acquired screen rights to “Chicago” several years ago, before the revival of the Bob Fosse, John Kander and Fred Ebb musical became a Broadway smash (winning six Tonys Sunday). The film, which was scripted by Larry Gelbart, will be produced by Broadway veteran Marty Richards, whose credits include “The Life,” which took home a pair of Tonys.

Miramax is one of several studios Richards has been talking to about a screen version of “The Life.”

“It goes without saying that Roxie and Velma are two of the greatest roles ever written for musical actresses, and with Goldie, Madonna and the great Marty Richards on board, this promises to be one heck of a ride,” Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said.

 
A director for “Chicago” will be announced shortly, Miramax said. Meryl Poster, executive vice president of production, will be the Miramax exec in charge of the production.
 

Vexed Madonna exits ‘Violins’

JULY 20, 1998 | 12:00AM PT

Material girl walks due to creative schism with Craven

NEW YORK — After spending three months learning to play the violin by the woman she was to portray in “50 Violins,” Madonna abruptly exited the Miramax project on Friday.

She was to begin work in early August starring in the film based on the life of Roberta Tzavaris, the East Harlem violin teacher who overcame a tough divorce and taught the instrument to inner-city kids, some of whom became Carnegie Hall-level fiddlers. That start date seems certain to be scratched even as names of possible replacement violinists like Sandra Bullock and Meg Ryan surfaced. Miramax denied it had made any overtures to other actresses.

A rumor coursed through the Gotham production community Friday that the Material Girl was dropped from the project following a read-through and because of an accumulation of demands she had made that irked director Wes Craven. Those sour notes were met with a chorus of denials from Miramax and Craven.

‘Mutual decision’

In a statement, Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein called the parting of the ways “a mutual decision.”

Craven echoed that sentiment: “Despite rumors to the contrary, this has resulted from genuine mutual creative differences. So although we’ve decided not to go forward on this project, our decision is accompanied by great respect for one another. I have nothing but goodwill and admiration towards Madonna. She is a brilliant artist and her talent and achievements speak for themselves,” Craven said.

Other sources close to the fray backed up that contention, saying that Madonna’s exit was due to irreconcilable differences over how Craven was going to depict the story of Tzavaris. They said Madonna had gotten to know her teacher and her family quite well and couldn’t stomach how different the movie was from her actual story.

More projects in the works

There is little reason to sound the violins in sympathy for Madonna’s lost employment opportunity. Though it’s the second consecutive film she’s ankled (she recently bailed from the indie drama “The Red Door,” which will star Diane Lane), Madonna’s sudden availability has Lakeshore Entertainment aggressively trying to move up a start date on “The Next Best Thing,” the film in which she’s slated to star with Rupert Everett.

Madonna also is producing the screen adaptation of the Jennifer Bell novel “Going Down,” which Christina Booth has scripted and will direct, and which is creating buzz as a hot project with both distributors and young actresses vying to play the NYU student who becomes a prostitute to pay tuition.

In January, Madonna’s set to topline with Goldie Hawn the screen version of the musical “Chicago,” which Nicholas Hytner will direct. The film based on one of Broadway’s hottest tickets has much brighter commercial prospects than “50 Violins,” and it is unlikely that Weinstein would risk a relationship with Madonna built since “Truth or Dare” by allowing her to be summarily dismissed.

Those where good projects...too bad she ended up doing TNBT...

Very interesting. So she truly had a great oportunity to have a bigger acting career.

Madonna Did NOT “Starve” Kids At Daughter Mercy’s Birthday, Despite Report

Madonna did not let kids “starve” or “go hungry” at her daughter Mercy’s birthday party, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can correct the claim from one of this week’s tabloids. We’re told it’s untrue.

According to the National Enquirer, during Mercy’s weekend-long birthday party in the Hamptons, Madonna went to bed early, “leaving angry guest to starve.” The supermarket tabloid claims that without given any warning, Madonna “disappeared into her bedroom and let her guests go hungry while their children blasted ‘unruly’ music.” The publication further alleges that “finally, at “9:45 PM on the second night of the sleepover, a guest stormed up to Madonna’s bedroom” and said, “My daughter’s starving! Those kids downstairs are starving! And the chef tells me he only takes orders from the lady of the house.”

The magazine then contends that only at that point did Madonna have dinner cooked for the kids, but that the chef “served a kosher meal that ‘was horrible.'” “In the end, several parents took their children to a local diner,” concludes the tabloid.

A bunch of questions come to mind. Why would the parents wait until the second night to say something to Madonna if their own kids were “starving”? Why not mention it earlier in the day? Why not go to that “local diner” sooner in they were hungry, rather than waiting two days and only going after they didn’t like the meal served to them? And lastly, why is this very questionable story popping up now when Mercy’s birthday was more than two months ago?

The simple answer to all the above questions, and what Gossip Cop has learned from a Madonna insider, is that the tabloid’s story is a fabrication. This never happened. We’re told it’s all untrue.

Given the Enquirer’s track record with Madonna, we’re not surprised by the falsity of this latest story. It’s the same discredited tabloid that Gossip Copbusted when it wrongly reported Madonna was rejected by James Corden for a “Carpool Karaoke.” Of course, the legendary singer appeared just a few months later in one of his taped singing bits. Not satisfied with already looking foolish, days after she was on the “Late Late Show,” Gossip Cop exposed the publication for making up a tale about Madonna yelling at Corden for smelling like cigaretteswhile filming “Carpool Karaoke.” None of those claims were accurate and neither is the latest manufactured article about Madonna letting kids “starve” at Mercy’s birthday.
