Legit helmer Rando going to ‘College’

Story centers on broke socialite at daughter's university

Broadway director John Rando (“Urinetown”) has agreed to helm campus comedy “The College Experience” for Warner Bros. with Adam Schroeder and Geri Robert producing.

Project is a mother-daughter comedy, centered on a spoiled Beverly Hills socialite who’s forced to join her daughter in college after finding herself newly divorced and broke. The daughter initially hates that her mother becomes the life of the party, but eventually they reconcile.

Robert developed the project with scribes Dax Shelby and Robert Stevens, who sold the spec to the studio two years ago (Daily Variety, Dec. 10, 2002).

Rando received the 2002 Tony and Outer Critics Circle awards for “Urinetown.” He also directed the Broadway revival of “A Thousand Clowns” and Neil Simon’s “The Dinner Party.”
