Hot on the heels of Netflix announcing a reboot of “Full House” comes news that the ’90s sitcom will also be made an Off-Broadway parody musical.
“Full House! The Musical!” will run on weekends starting September 7 at Theater 80 on St. Mark’s Place and will “follow Danny’s wacky and hilarious descent into madness as he slowly turns from wholesome Danny Tanner to foul-mouthed and dark Bob Saget.”
The production comes from the creators of the off-off-Broadway “Saved by the Bell” hit parody “National Lampoon’s Bayside! The Musical!” and “Showgirls! The Musical!” Choreography will be by Jason Wise, scenic design by Bryan Harlett, costume design by Shamira Clark, lighting design by Adam Lash and sound design by Lauren Vargas, according to Theatre Mania. Casting will be announced in the coming months.
Outrageous song titles are expected to include “This House is Too Full,” “Our Family is Better Than Your Family,” “I’m Kind of a Slut (But Just Enough for Network TV),” “Dad Speech (I’m a F-cking Superhero),” and “Kimmy Gibler Don’t Give a F–k.”
John Stamos revealed earlier this month that Netflix’s official revival, “Fuller House,” has received a 13-episode order and will bring back series stars Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber. Stamos will produce, as well as guest-star.
Lifetime also recently announced it will develop an unauthorized “Full House” movie similar to its previous “Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.”
