Jerry Lewis Reviving The Nutty Professor On Broadway
Eighty-three-year-old Jerry Lewis will join the list of Hollywood personalities bringing stage versions of their movie work to Broadway, published reports said Monday. He is expected to direct a musical version of his 1963 film The Nutty Professor, which will reportedly feature a musical score by Marvin Hamlisch and Rupert Holmes. He is not expected to appear in the production. In 1995, Lewis received rave reviews for his performance in a revival of Damn Yankees , his first and only appearance in a Broadway show.
