Melissa Gilbert is going to start in a musical version of Little House on the Prairie, playing Caroline Ingalls this time round! Seriously. I know it's hard to believe, but it gets better. Playing Pa to her Ma is none other than Patrick "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" Swayze. He's no Michael Landon, but, um, where do we sign up? Well, the bad news is that the Rachel Portman-composed Prairie is currently a workshop that is closed to adoring fans.
Let's just pray that the musical is smokin' hot and sets the prairie (and theater world) on fire!
