'Ugly Betty: The Musical' Coming to Broadway?

ABC’s hit drama Ugly Betty may be turning into a Broadway musical production soon!

Michael Urie, aka Wilhemina’s assistant Marc, told British radio station Heart, “They do want to do an Ugly Betty musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush-hush. I think it would be great, and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers. I think it would be fun for us to do it for a while, and then they could get real people in. They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to do a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work.”

Ugly Betty Moves to New York -- It's Official!

The production of Ugly Betty is definitely moving to New York City, announced Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gov. David Paterson and ABC Studios President Mark Pedowitz.

The ABC series is moving from LA to NY in order to take advantage of the 35% tax credits from the city and state, which will create more than 200 full- and part-time jobs.

The move was joked about on Saturday Night Live this past weekend during Amy Poehler‘s Weekend Update: “Producers of the hit show Ugly Betty are in talks to relocate production of the show to New York City, where it is set. Which is odd, because I thought it was set on a gay spaceship.”

Ugly Betty Heads to the Big Apple

ABC is moving production for Ugly Betty from Los Angeles to New York next season, reports TV Guide.

The East Coast move will help cut production costs (“It’s generally cheaper to shoot in the city you’re trying to portray”) and give the show a more authentic New York feel.

Better yet, costars Vanessa Williams and Ana Ortiz are both from NY and Michael Urie graduated from Julliard.

“It’s a done deal,” says an insider. No more NYC green screen!
