Kirstie Alley Is A Whore! (At least, Lance Bass thinks so.)

Despite Justin Timberlake’s numerous “Saturday Night Live” appearances, smash-hit solo career and blockbuster movies, Lance Bass is still trying to catch up as the most successful N*Sync member post-boy band days. He’s now trying to launch a new boy band, Heart2Heart, whose first single, “Facebook Official,” is obviously a work of musical genius. (Note the sarcasm.)

He’s also attempting to take his talents to the great white way in the form of a new play, “The Fabulous Lives of Hollywood Whores.” Bass is producing, along with Jamie Kennedy, Beverly Mitchell (of “7th Heaven” fame), and Matt Seifnia.

The play centers around a woman that the cast listing describes as a “delicious and dangerous diva” (Alley), who runs a high-end escort service in Los Angeles. However, there’s a twist–she uses an LA department store as a cover for her ‘business.’

The small, eight-person ensemble is filled with eccentric, memorable characters, such as an ex-porn star turned Hollywood agent, a D-list actress desperate to make it big and a top male escort posing as a department store manager by daylight.

The show is holding auditions in late November with plans to open on Broadway in the spring (although their current lack of a theater to house their production could potentially produce a problem). While executives have said that Kirstie Alley is only in talks for the lead, the casting listing’s announcement says differently.

Alley has never hit the Broadway stage before, but she’s put on some good performances in those Jenny Craig commercials, not to mention her Emmy winning performance in “Cheers.” She’s got a big personality, one that I could see transferring well to Broadway.
