In a rather bizarre development, a Broadway musical version of “The Nanny” (you know, you know, Fran Descher’s starrer about the flashy nanny from Flushing, Queens who eventually married her employer, the Broadway impresario, Maxwell Sheffield) is coming whether we want it or not.
I loved “The Nanny” but not sure it’s a natural for the stage. Well, in a way it’s a twisted version of “The Sound of Music”, so maybe. The most promising aspect of the venture is the fact Rachel Bloom and Adam Schlesinger are writing the songs. They were the dream team from “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”! Or maybe just an evening of songs by this talented duo?
