The Tanner family — or something like it — is coming to a stage near you… if you’re in Toronto or Manhattan.
Spoofy stage musical productions of popular TV shows are apparently a thing these days, and few know how to do it better than Bob and Tobly McSmith, the pair behind cult favorite Off Broadway novelties like Bayside! The Musical and Showgirls! The Musical, which both enjoyed successful extended runs in New York.
This fall, they’ve set their sights on Full House! The Musical, and EW has a first look at the cast: Perez Hilton as Danny Tanner, Seth Blum as Joey, John Duff as Jesse, Bridget Russell Kennedy as Becky, Amanda Nicholas as DJ, Marguerite Halcovage as Stephanie, and Marshall Louise as the Olsen Twins. Yes, both of them.
To say the gang looks identical to their TV counterparts is a stretch, but hey, at least they’re better than these doppelgangers?
Full House! The Musical (which includes songs like “This House is Too Full” and “Look at These A—holes,” sung by Comet the Dog) will run at Toronto’s Randolph Theatre from Aug. 18 through Sept. 6, and at New York’s Theater 80 from Sept. 10 through Nov. 29.
