In the past few years the 90’s have made a comeback… and what’s better than a Broadway show of one of your favorite movies? Buzz60’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has more.
Get ready, world: Euphegenia Doubtfire is Broadway-bound.
The creative team behind the hit musical “Something Rotten!” is at work on a stage adaptation of the film “Mrs. Doubtfire,” Entertainment Weekly reports. The show’s book will be written by John O’Farrell and Karey Kirkpatrick, the latter of whom will team up with Wayne Kirkpatrick for the music.
Four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks, whose 2017 “Hello, Dolly!” revival starring Bette Midler was a smash, is attached to direct.
“‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ is such a beloved story, both laugh-out-loud hilarious and extremely moving,” Fox Stage Productions and producer Kevin McCollum said in a Tuesday statement cited by Playbill. “Getting this team together and crafting ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ for the stage has been pure joy. We can’t wait to get into production.”
Casting and a production schedule for the show have not yet been announced.
