Oh my God, have we got exciting news!
Remember that girl who worked in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens till her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes? She had nowhere to go, she was out on her fanny, so she went over the bridge to the Sheffields’ door — and now she’s headed to Broadway!
Fran Drescher is turning her hit ‘90s sitcom, The Nanny, into a musical. She will be joined by her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, who co-created the show with her, as well as Rachel Bloom who recently won an Emmy for the music for her series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
“We are so excited to be working on the Broadway musical The Nanny,” said Drescher and Jacobson. “We’re equally excited that the wildly talented Rachel Bloom will be writing the lyrics and music with the fantastic Adam Schlesinger, and to have the brilliant Marc Bruni directing. Nobody is cast yet – we’re plotting – but we feel confident we will find a fabulous actress who is funny, charming and has a great voice.”
We can’t wait to meet Miss Fine!
