Euphegenia Doubtfire is headed for Broadway…
The creative team behind the hit musical “Something Rotten!” is at work on a stage adaptation of the 1993 film, which starred Robin Williams.
The movie featured Williams as a struggling actor who disguises himself as a British nanny to spend time with his three children after losing custody to his ex-wife.
The film made $441 million at the box office worldwide and is cited alongside 1982’s “Tootsie” and 1959’s “Some Like It Hot” as a cinematic benchmark for featuring a leading man in drag.
Casting and a production schedule for the show have not yet been announced.
A musical version of “Tootsie” is slated to open on Broadway next year as well.
