Talk about exciting news! Former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe is relocating to New York City so she can appear in a Broadway show. Bristowe was able to make the fun announcement through her podcast, Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe, and luckily for Bachelor Nation, she was able to talk a little bit about the project. From the sounds of Bristowe’s description, while it doesn’t sound like she’ll be taking center stage in Wicked anytime soon, her new Broadway show will offer her the opportunity to show off her vocal chops a little bit while also charming the heck out of those who go to see her.
On Monday’s episode of Off the Vine, Bristowe was able to finally break the exciting news. “I have an announcement to make. Kaitlyn Bristowe is going to Broadway,” she told her listeners.
After making the big announcement, she and her fiancé, Shawn Booth, briefly discussed the Broadway dreams she had as a little girl. “That’s what dreams are made of, if you ask me. If you had asked me when I was little, like, ‘Imagine you were on Broadway,’ I’d be like, ‘Yeah, right.’ I grew up dancing and singing and I just love everything about that. I love going to Broadway shows,” she told Booth.
Even better, she was able to discuss just how big a deal this was to her and give a preview on Off the Vine and on Twitter of what her show will be about. “It’s a big deal because I get to go do a show every single night on Broadway we get to live in New York for a little minute, but it’s so exciting. It’s a Christmas little family holiday show,” she said.
On Twitter, Bristowe posted a photo of the poster for the show, which won’t necessarily be a typical Broadway show. The show is making the leap to Broadway after the original plans for a run in Las Vegas changed, according to People. The show will feature a range of talented voices from shows like American Idol and The Voice as well. Home for the Holidays will see Bristowe hosting the show — she even contributed a few of the show’s songs according to People‘s report.

I don’t know what’s more exciting: the thought of Bristowe heading to Broadway or the fact that we will soon be able to hear her sing. Either way, it’s definitely a good thing.
