She continued, “Years and years ago, when I was going to do the Broadway musical—I never can get it to how I want it, but I’m still working on it. But I thought she’d be an ideal person to do that. But we’re all getting older now, so if we tell the parts…we may be able to have different Dollys. We’d probably have to have—as long as my career has been—like a little Dolly, and a middle Dolly, and then the older one. And she’d still be great for that.”

There is one song that Dolly has also revealed will be a very important part of the music. It is her song called “From Here to the Moon and Back” because it was written about her longtime husband, Carl, who mainly stays out of the spotlight.
