Musical based on The Apprentice to hit Broadway

Broadway producers are to make a musical based on The Apprentice, real estate mogul Donald Trump’s hit television series.

"Donald Trump is a larger-than-life character, and the Broadway musical stage may be the only medium large enough for him," said Barry Weissler, producer of the current revivals of Chicago and Sweet Charity.

The show is being planned for a spring New York opening next year. Carey on MTV Mariah Carey will perform at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, joining Eminem and Nine Inch Nails to complete the line-up.

Tom Cruise and Samuel L. Jackson have been added to the list of presenters of the 14th annual awards show, which will air in the US on June 9.
