Modern Family: The Musical?

Could a musical episode of Modern Family be on the way? As Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson took the stage for the 10th annual Les Girl charity cabaret on October 4, raising funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, it became evident that performing crazy antics in song is not a stretch for this cast.

Could a musical episode of Modern Family be on the way? As Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson took the stage for the 10th annual Les Girl charity cabaret on October 4, raising funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, it became evident that performing crazy antics in song is not a stretch for this cast.

If anyone is convinced it's a possibility it's Bowen (Claire). "There could [be a musical episode], but I won't be in it," the actress, who hosted the event, told TV Guide Magazine. Though Bowen said she would only sing in public if it indeed cured cancer, she added that the majority of the cast would be more than capable of performing their lines to music. "Eric, Ty, Jesse, Sofia [Vergara] — yeah that's right, she looks like that and she sings. Sarah Hyland [Haley] — she was on Broadway in Annie, the girl is amazing — and Ariel [Winter, Alex]," she listed of the musically adept actors on the show.

Bowen wouldn't be left out, as she's already carved out a part for herself. "I could be in a coma and be imagining the whole thing in my head," she said. "It's an option."
