Diana DeGarmo’s new adventure a mystery for now

gamusic0909-02Something’s up with Snellville’s Diana DeGarmo.

The American Idol runner-up, who’s since appeared on the CMT reality show “Gone Country,” and hit Broadway as Penny Pingleton in “Hairspray,” and off-Broadway as a blind librarian in “Toxic Avenger,” is close to sealing some new deal.

(Hey, there’s a reason she made RoHo’s list of Most Successful Idol Alums last fall.)

Exactly what the Shiloh High School grad’s next step is remains unclear but her tantalizing tweets suggest either another reality show or another musical, given the time committment involved. On Tuesday afternoon an apparently nervous DeGarmo tweeted that she was about to “find out about the next seven months of my life,” and followed up a few hours later with “I booked it! I will unveil the show once the deal is sealed.”

Whatever it is, the venture seems likely to be a taxing one.

Wednesday she was back with “Feeling sore as all get out today, but can’t wait to know when the deal is sealed for my new job!”  and then, “Don’t jump to conclusions anyone.”

She auditioned for Hair and possibly Rock of Ages. She has won a role and most speculation centers on the lead female role in one of those two shows.

I follow her tweets. She said it was a Broadway show that she had a callback for. We just don’t know what that show is going to be.

It’s 95% sure to be Hair. The official announcement hasn’t come yet though so there could still be a curve ball with that 5% uncertainty. http://www.twitter/broadwaygirlnyc unofficially confirmed the news with her friends within the show.
