Frasier star David Hyde Pierce has laughed off reports he’s in talks to turn the hit TV show into a stage musical.

The 51 year old, who has starred in both Broadway and West End productions, is adamant the sitcom, which ended in 2004, will not be revived for theater audiences.

And Pierce admits he’s happy to leave the show in the past.

He says “No, we don’t want to do anything like that. It’s something we’re all very proud of and are happy to leave in syndication. Life goes on.”
