Last week  Emma Thompson was In Conversation event with fellow actors Jim Carter and Imelda Staunton at the Tricycle  in Kilburn, when she revealed a Nanny McPhee musical has passed the planning stages and is set to workshop this spring. 

The multi talented Thompson played McPhee in two successful films and wrote their screenplays,
She is also writing the stage show and first mentioned it  two years ago, but the all-singing and dancing version is now moving on with early casting discussions under way and a West End run planned.  It is not known who will take the lead part but Thompson has been in  musicals including last year’s Disney remake of Beauty and the Beast and Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd.
