A uber-comedic take on the original TV show where the musical show picks up where the TV show left off on, way back in 1999

The Nanny on Broadway Background

In 2020, The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rachel Bloom and Fountains of Wayne’s singer Adam Schlesinger were set to write the music for the show, but Schlesinger died of Covid-19 at the age of 52. Following his death, Bloom still remained on board doing the music for the show, attempting to capture many of Schlesinger's ideas and creativity.

The Nanny Musical Parallels With the Original TV Show

The Broadway musical show attempts to capture the verve of hilarity of the original TV show in which Fran Drescher starred as the lead character, Franny Fein. The original TV show, which aired from 1993 to 1999 has been playing on TBS and HBO. This show was created by Drescher in 1998 who had an epiphany about creating a TV show using the Sound of Music format, but with an updated environment of modern day New York City.

Original Show Shot on Poor Quality Tape

The original beloved TV show was unfortunately shot on poor quality digital tape to save on production costs. In reruns, the show now looks tired and fuzzy on modern TV screens. Showtime, HBO and a number of random TV stations have struggled with trying to improve the quality to be able to broadcast.

Is The Nanny Good for Kids?

Despite the close-to-the-line comedy this show is appropriate for most audiences. Anyone offended should check themselves before they wreck themselves.
