Eighties pop star Cyndi Lauper is Broadway, New York, bound after signing up to replace THE SOPRANOS star Edie Falco in THE THREEPENNY OPERA.

The GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN singer will make her New York stage debut in March (06) as part of an all-star cast, featuring Alan Cumming, JIM DALE and quirky pop star Nellie Mckay.

Lauper will play JENNY DIVER in the Roundabout Theater Company's upcoming revival of the KURT WEILL/BERTOLT BRECHT musical.

Falco was originally announced for the part, but had to withdraw from the show due to a scheduling conflict.

Designer Isaac Mizrahi is among the show's production team.
