Alan Menken developing Mrs Doubtfire musical for Broadway

24 January 2015 2:43 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A Mrs Doubtfire musical is in development.

Composer Alan Menken told Entertainment Weekly Radio that the project is in the "early stages" of development.

"It's in its early stages, and that's probably all I can say," he said, adding: "We're really enjoying working on it."

Menken has previously created the music for Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Enchanted, Little Shop of Horrors and Sister Act the Musical.

Harvey Fierstein, who starred in the film with Robin Williams as his make-up artist brother, will write the script for the musical.

Mrs Doubtfire was released in 1993, and also starred Sally Field, Mara Wilson and Pierce Brosnan.

Talk of a film sequel was halted after Williams's death last year.

Plans Afoot To Stage A ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Musical!

23 January 2015 11:41 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The death of Robin Williams devastated the world late last year. It was a news story that many could not believe or indeed want to believe. He was gone. A Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb may have been his final performance on screen, save a vocal part in the Simon Pegg starrer Absolutely Anything, but his film legacy is still alive, even if Hollywood is intent on keeping it so by rehashing some of his old work. This is a little different however as news reaches us today that plans are afoot to bring one of his most beloved movies to the stage.

Mrs. Doubtfire was probably one of Williams’ finest movies, and probably one of the best comedies of the 1990s. Now Alan Menken and Harvey Fierstein are said to be behind a stage version of the film, according to EW.

A Mrs. Doubtfire Musical Is Actively Being Worked On

23 January 2015 9:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Looks like one more Mara Wilson movie is headed to Broadway: Alan Menken told EW Radio this week that he's currently hard at work writing the score for a Mrs. Doubtfire musical alongside the movie's own Harvey Fierstein, who's writing the book. (David Zippel is handling lyrics.) Menken cautioned that the trio was "in the early stages," but they were all "really enjoying working on it." As will, we imagine, Broadway's finest pyrotechnicians.  »

A 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Musical Is Coming

23 January 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, composer Alan Menken, who is probably most famous for working on Disney animated classics "The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," and "Beauty and the Beast" (in addition to "Little Shop of Horrors," "Enchanted" and the recent, weirdly overlooked television series "Galavant"), admitted that he is turning "Mrs. Doubtfire" into a Broadway musical.

While Menken will be composing the score, David Zippel, who worked with Menken on Disney's "Hercules," will be writing the lyrics and Harvey Fierstein, who was in the movie and is something of a Broadway legend (having written books for "Kinky Boots" and "Newsies," among many others), will be writing the book. Otherwise, Menken was pretty cagey. "It's going very well, it's in its early stages, and that's probably all I can say," Menken told Entertainment Weekly. "We're really enjoying working on it."

The original "Mrs. Doubtfire," released in 1993 by 20th Century Fox, starred Robin Williams and Sally Field. »

'Mrs. Doubtfire' House Struck by Arsonist

7 January 2015 6:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The iconic Mrs. Doubtfire house which is located in San Francisco was struck by an arsonist late on Monday. Made famous by the comedy, the property has served as a memorial for the late Robin Williams since his death last year. Damage was limited, as the owner was able to put the fire out before it got out of control.

The incident happened at 8:00 pm on Monday. The owner, a doctor, believes the fire was started by a disgruntled patient. Fire officials believe the arsonist doused the doormat in a flammable liquid before igniting it on fire.

Before his death, Robin Williams was planning a return as Daniel Hillard, an actor and divorcee who disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. The location was likely to be used again in Mrs. Doubtfire 2, but the project, of course, »
