First an Emmy and now Broadway stardom? Susan Lucci, who replaced Bernadette Peters in the musical revival of Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun" for three weeks over the holidays, says she might return to the Broadway show for good. "They've asked me to step in for Bernadette when she (permanently) leaves the show," Lucci told TV Guide. "There are many discussions to be had, but I hope it works out. It's been an exhilarating experience." Lucci, whose time is usually taken up portraying Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children," received mixed reviews for her turn as the singing and dancing sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Critics said she needs to work on her projection.
