It’s one of the most beloved comedies of the 1990s, thanks to Robin Williams' magical presence, and “Mrs. Doubtfire” is about to get the Broadway treatment, according to Alan Menken.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Disney composer explained that he’s currently working on a musical score for the project along with lyricist David Zippel and script writer Harvey Fierstein.
He was one of the most beloved actors of all time, and the late Robin Williams' family is struggling with his death four months later. The “Good Will Hunting” star’s son Zak Williams told People magazine that things haven’t gotten much easier with the passage of time.
"I miss him all the time. Often I see something or if I'm watching a film, I think 'Oh, man, he would have appreciated this' or 'He would have gotten a laugh out of this.'"
The death of Robin Williams was one of the hardest Hollywood losses in years, and last night (September 18) Billy Crystal dropped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to talk about his heartfelt Emmy tribute last month.
During the chat, the “When Harry Met Sally” star recalled how he struggled to keep his composure as he addressed the audience- “I was afraid I wasn’t going to get through it.”
