Zac Efron to Star in 'Dreamcoat'?

Zac Efron to Star in 'Dreamcoat'?

Zac Efron is possibly looking to make his West End theater debut with the part of Joseph in the musical, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat according to the Mirror.

The 20-year-old High School Musical actor reportedly spoke with Andrew Lloyd Webber about the part. Lee Mead, who currently plays Joseph, will be leaving in January.

An inside source commented, “It is a marriage made in musical heaven. Zac loves the role and is keen to clock up some stage time in London. For Hollywood actors a spell in the West End offers credibility and can be extremely lucrative!”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Zac playing Joseph in Dreamcoat — YAY or NAY?

    I vote YAY!

    He spent a good bit of time in UK last winter and I know he loved it there and would like to go back. Plus he wants to do London theatre work so this is perfect. I dont know “Joseph” but I have no doubt he could make it great.

    He has to be riding high right now after great notices for MAOW over the weekend.

    Yay Zackers!

    Congratulations to Zac! That is a wonderful opportunity and will get him out of LA and all the craziness. If he makes it there on the biggest stage in the world he will get tons of offers.

    Go for it Zac. He is in need of a change and that would be super for his career. In his own words he wants to go in other directions and London is an awesome stage. Wow! That’s great for him.

    Good for Zac . He can get away from the paps in the US and begin anew in London. So glad to see him shedding the dreaded ZANESSA label everywhere and making a fresh start. I wish him well as himself……Zac Efron.

    um… i don’t really know what to say. first high school musical and then this marriage musical? what is he thinking? i mean it seems he likes change but that much… i can just say that may be if he works on his acting skills he can make this thing and make it good because it’s not that easy to make a theater thing…but if he’s not really ready i say that it’s better to back off than dissapoint the fans.
    and.. what is going on with zanessa jj? i want some news.

    Wow i guess the predictions are all falling into place. Zac leaves to London, Vanessa back in LA all alone, how much testing can her little physique handle. This will be a true test to their relationship whether it ends or prevails. It will be interesting on Zac’s new partner or female friendship now that HSM3 is over. It will also be interesting who Miss Vanessa will become male friends with? But then again they are both still young and soon both of them won’t be in demand to the younger crowd so this kind of an exit is GREAT…. the silent exit so the next time you see both of them whether together or apart they’ll be like new news again oh how fun is hollywood.

    Unless Zac himself “officially” confirmed this information to JJ, then I consider it just that. Another rumor.
