Fran Drescher Has an Actress in Mind Already for 'The Nanny' Broadway Musical

The Nanny is getting a lot of attention this week after the full series was added to HBO Max!

Fran Drescher has previously announced that a Broadway musical based on the TV show is in the works and now she has revealed that she already has an actress in mind for the lead role.

In an interview with Marie Claire, Fran said that the musical will be “much bigger than the TV show” and she envisions Mr. Sheffield’s staff having a feather-duster dance number.

Though Fran wants to make sure the show can “stand on its own” without her starring in it, she’s considering playing the nanny’s mother Sylvia Fine in the show.

While Fran said it would be great to discover an unknown actress to play Fran Fine, there’s an “unnamed pop star who has crossed over into movies” who she had in mind.

Fran said that she ran into the singer at a party and pitched the idea. “Her eyes kind of lit up,” she said.

WHO DO YOU THINK the singer/actress is?!
