About the show

Based upon the beloved 1993 film, this new family-friendly musical comedy tells the story of an out-of-work actor who disguises himself as a Scottish nanny in order to stay in his children's lives. More…

From the show:

Helloooooooo, poppets! Mrs Doubtfire is a musical now, dearie!

When out-of-work actor Daniel Hillard loses custody of his kids in a divorce, he disguises himself as Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As he gets lost in his new persona and grows closer to his kids, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.

A heartfelt and hilarious story about the lengths we’ll go to for our loved ones, Mrs. Doubtfire is the next big musical comedy hit for the whole family.

Amusing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you liked Tootsie, man wearing woman's clothes, etc. Rob McClure is excellent, he is constantly on stage, singing, tap dancing, two voices..

Don't see it if you did not like Tootsie. This musical is over-filled with dance numbers, costumes, all very hectic. Tell Zaks to cut cut cut.

Also Tis fun but not memorable. Lacking warmth.

See it if You want a heartwarming fun uplifting show in these times of insanity. Rob is at his peak. It’s the Hairspray of this time in history.

Don't see it if cliched stereotypes of secondary characters are things you can’t overlook (the campy gay couple,etc). The ‘updating’ falls flat in that area
