"I did read that you were working on a Broadway show about your bedwetting," Stern said to Silverman, referring to the musical adaptation of "The Bedwetter."

She replied, "My friend Adam Schlesinger, who is a composer — he wrote 'That Thing You Do!,' and he's from [pop band] Fountains of Wayne… We've done a lot of things together, and he pitched it to me. He read my book 'The Bedwetter,' and he said, 'This is a childhood story.'"

She explained that although she wouldn't star in it, the musical would chronicle her early years and that Cry-Baby writer Schlesinger is working on the score. She said that there are already "five killer songs" completed.

"He's doing the music, and we're collaborating," she continued. "I've been working on the book, but we're also meeting people to help collaborate on the book."

As for wetting the bed on stage, she told Stern, "Well, I don't think that urine will really come out of [the actor's] urethra. But, great question!"

In "The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee," Silverman describes her family and upbringing. She writes about her growing up wetting the bed until age 16.
