THE FLY star Jeff Goldblum is taking his actress fiancee CATHERINE WREFORD back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - so they can appear onstage together in THE MUSIC MAN.

The pair, who have been together for 10 months, are excitedly preparing to take to the stage together next month (JUL04) to perform in what has been a favourite of Goldblum's for decades.

Goldblum says, "I'll tell you what is particularly boiling my juices and exciting my gizzard: I'm gonna do - with Catherine - The Music Man.

"I've always loved it. My parents went to see it when I was a kid and they brought back the cast album and I kinda learned a little bit of it.

"This summer we're (performing) at the PITTSBURGH CIVIC LIGHT OPERA at the BENEDUM CENTER for two weeks starting July 6th through the 18th.

"It's so exciting - going home, doing the Music Man, being on stage. I started in musicals but I haven't done that (for a long time). It's very exciting and nerve-wracking. Everything's cooking!"

Goldblum will play HAROLD HILL, while Canadian Wreford will portray MARIAN PAROO.
