The Nanny is being developed into a Broadway musical! It will be based on the Sony Pictures television series created by Peter Marc Jacobson and Fran Drescher.
The musical will feature direction by Marc Bruni, a book co-written by Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Drescher and Jacobson, with lyrics by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom and music by Bloom and three-time Emmy winner and Tony Award nominee Adam Schlesinger. A production timeline for the Broadway-bound musical, additional creative team members, and casting information will be announced at a later date.
“We are SO excited to be working on the Broadway musicalThe Nanny,” said Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson in the press release. “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.”
“Of course I would do it myself,” Fran remarked, “but we’d have to change the title toThe Granny.”
