Hugh Jackman & Anne Hathaway In THE DROWSY CHAPERONE? Barbra Streisand? Fred Schepisi Teases
In a fascinating new interview, versatile director Fred Schepisi reveals new details on the forthcoming big screen edition of hit multi-Tony Award-winning musical THE DROWSY CHAPERONE and muses on casting for the film.
Schepisi states, "I'm going to do a musical called "The Drowsy Chaperone." It was on Broadway and is a fabulous musical that sort of takes the Mickey out of musicals, while enjoying being a musical."
Describing the plot, Schepisi says, "You're led through it by this lonely bugger who can't quite deal with the world, so he escapes into '20s musicals. He listens to them and they come to life for him."
