12 hours ago

Robin Williams is ready to dig his old dress out of storage, as he's set to star in “Mrs. Doubtfire 2,” an individual familiar with the Fox 2000 sequel told TheWrap.

When big stars make their Broadway debuts, especially those big stars who don't have much of a theater pedigree, the first question has to be: “So, can they act? On stage?” Since the disappointment of Julia Roberts’ Broadway debut (“Three Days of Rain,” 2006, preceded even more infamously by Madonna's 1988 debut, in “Speed-the-Plow”), movie stars have acquitted themselves quite well on old Broadway.
