Julie Andrews to Direct Broadway Mousical

julieandrews Julie Andrews to Direct Broadway MousicalJulie Andrews is returning to Broadway—as a director, according to Variety (blogger?) Army Archerd.

Her most charming book, The Great American Mousical, which she wrote with daughter Emma Walton Hamilton, is being musicked by Anthony Drewe and George Stiles, the team who tuned the musical Mary Poppins. The ultra charming, humorous and yes, exciting Mousical also takes on some of the recognizable Broadway stars who appear on stage above the cellar-dwellng mice. The book was illustrated by Tony Walton who will likely design the sets and costumes, making this Broadway production a family affair.
