Lea Michele for 'Fran'. Bette Midler for 'Sylvia', but since she's a longshot - Harvey in drag !
Kacie Sheik could possibly work as Fran. Or not. I'm in two minds.
This is a WHY musical as in why does the world need the TV show turned into a musical?
BroadwayBox posted their own list of choices, 4/5 were probably taken directly from this thread. The one suggestion that was new to me was, oddly, Jackie Burns...
Here's the link to the story Ado Annie mentioned. My vote is definitely for Lesli Margherita.https://www.broadwaybox.com/daily-scoop/dream-casting-fran-fine-in-the-new-the-nanny-musical/

If there was ever a role tailor-made for Lesli Margherita, it’s Nanny Fine."Definitely.
I may be in the minority, but keep Lesli far away from this. I'd actually like an actress hired to create Fran. Lesli seems to be ON all the time (whether on stage or off) and I find her schtick exhausting. She's thirsty. I like the idea of Annaleigh, SJB, or Rachel. Even Kritzer is a little too histrionic for me. I honestly don't want someone mimicking Drescher. That would just make the whole thing hollow for me. You can't replicate her, so why try?
Interesting but rather macabre choice of material - who will play the Bette Davis part?
