Barbie Stage Actress A Real Doll

PHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A lot of little girls dream of living Barbie’s life, but one lucky lady actually is Barbie come to life.

Erin Coors has been tapped to play the dolly in a new Barbie musical called Barbie Live in Fairytopia – and for inquiring minds, Ken does not appear in the musical.

Since learning she’ll play Barbie, Coors says she’s been preparing a lot, mostly through rehearsals. But the best preparation the Cincinnati native may have gotten was her childhood love for childhood toy.

She says she loved her Barbie ballerina most of all and says it’s what made her want to go into dancing.

That means the opportunity to play Barbie is, as she puts it, “very full circle for me.”

Coors says her favorite Barbie accessory was a hot pink “Star-Vette,” but side-steps the question of if she’d like to drive the Barbie-mobile and live in the Barbie Dream Home.

Barbie Live in Fairytopia will open April 1 in Columbus, Ohio – no fooling.
