In development as both a live-action film and a stage musical. I saw the stage musical in the park in NYC in 2019 and it was a lot of fun - Roger Bart, original film singer, as the villain!!!

For an insane second I read "Amanda Plummer" as "Amanda PALMER" and thought "Dang, I REALLY missed out when I skipped this, didn't I?"

My daughter’s first movie in a theater and one played endlessly on the VCR. We still quote it more than we should: “Jeepers … mister?” “I was going for innocent?” “Memo to me, memo to me … maim you after my meeting.” I’ll stop now. Excited for the staged musical!
