Back in the 90's (and to this day) one of my all-time favorite movies was Mrs. Doubtfire. While the idea of the movie seems a little odd, something about the way that Robin Williams just owned that role worked so well and gave it so much heart. In fact, before his death, Williams almost took on the role again for a sequel which was (of course) scrapped.
Now it appears that the character will be brought back to life via a new Broadway musical! In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, theater producer Kevin McCollum says:
“Mrs. Doubtfire is such a beloved story, both laugh-out-loud hilarious and extremely moving. Getting this team together and crafting Mrs. Doubtfire for the stage has been pure joy. We can’t wait to get into production.”
Sounds like this is definitely happening, right? I really hope they do it well too! Not sure exactly how this will work for the stage, or what kinds of songs they'll use but they certainly have my attention!
Might they do a Broadway version of this Aerosmith classic from the movie? Here's hoping!
