Liz Smith reports in the New York Post that Rosie O’Donnell may be joining the cast of the ABBA-fest musical Mamma Mia! when it arrives in New York. The lead would still be played by Canadian actress Louise Pitre, but O’Donnell could well show up in a best friend–backup singer role. The musical is due to arrive on Broadway in October.
