'Mrs. Doubtfire' Musical Is in Development

Disney film music composer Alan Menken and one of the original actors Harvey Fierstein are involved in the stage production.

AceShowbiz - "Mrs. Doubtfire" musical is in the works. Disney film music composer and producer Alan Menken says he is working on the music for the project. "It's going very well," he told EW Radio. "It's in its early stages. We're really enjoying working on it."

No cast has been announced, but one of the actors in the original movie is involved in the stage production. Harvey Fierstein who played Robin Williams' on-screen brother is enlisted to pen the book for the upcoming show.

"Mrs. Doubtfire" follows a struggling voice actor who, after a bitter divorce, disguises himself as a female nanny to spend time with his children held in custody by his ex-wife (Sally Field) who has moved on with a new man (Pierce Brosnan).

Williams was originally expected to reprise his role as the cross-dressing nanny in "Mrs. Doubtfire 2", but his passing in August 2014 has cast a doubt on the potential sequel.
