Short Gets The Hawn On Stage

Published on November 30, 2006 with No Comments

Goldie HawnVeteran Hollywood star Goldie Hawn is set to make a guest appearance in the Broadway hit Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me.

The 61-year-old actress who last starred in The Banger Sisters in 2002 on screen is said to be excited about the one night only part.

The show, which opened in August to rave reviews, has featured special appearances from a string of celebrities by fellow members of the tribe, including Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler and Roseanne Barr.

It features Short – best known for his film roles in Three Amigos and Father Of The Bride –playing himself and several characters in a parody of the entertainment world.

Hawn will feature in the December 1 performance of the musical, being interviewed by Short’s character Jiminy Glick.

As well as poking fun at showbiz, Fame Becomes Me also touches upon the fact that many people believe Short to be Jewish.

In fact the Canadian-born, 56-year-old actor is Roman Catholic and of Irish descent.

But the show features a number of Jewish references, including a song in which one co-star ponders why songs aimed at black female performers are usually “written by gay white Jews”.
