Q I hope David Hyde Pierce, who played Niles on Frasier, gets his own sitcom some day. What can you tell me about his upcoming projects?
—Margaret Voynar, Chapel Hill, Tenn.
When Frasier ended its successful nine-year run on NBC in 2004, Pierce, 48, announced he wanted to return to the stage, and did just that. He recently completed a role in Monty Python's Spamalot, a Broadway spin-off of the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and he stars now in Curtains, a new musical comedy at New York's Al Hirschfeld Theater. He has no immediate plans to return to television, but stay tuned.
