Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you're a fan of the movie. This staging is very clever, but the songs are forgettable.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of the movie or if you're looking for something more serious. This is a farce and very enjoyable.

BroadwayWorld
June 23rd, 2023

" 'Mrs. Doubtfire' is a surprisingly original creation, modernised for a contemporary audience without detracting from the charm of the original. Not only is it a fantastically fun night out, it has heart...and that alone is worth the ticket price."

The Guardian (UK)

"The show may delight a younger generation encountering the story for the first time but it ultimately serves as a cautionary tale against taking a well-loved film and giving it a bland treatment on stage."

The Telegraph (UK)
June 22nd, 2023

“Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt that the sun doth move, doubt truth to be a liar – but never doubt I love ‘Mrs Doubtfire,’ the feelgood but not fluffy-minded musical that has pitched up at the newly made-over Shaftesbury theatre.”

London Theatre
June 23rd, 2023

"Appropriately enough for a tale all about transformations – inside and out – it’s surprisingly inventive, refashioning the original just enough to make it thoroughly theatrical and a smart 21st-century show."

The Stage (UK)
June 23rd, 2023

“The story is ruthlessly streamlined, but most of the set-pieces remain...The stagecraft is cumbersome when it should dazzle. Sadly, that’s the evening’s hallmark.”

Time Out London

" 'Mrs Doubtfire' feels like it melds the best of past and present, offering a dose of nostalgia that's more complicated than Mary Poppins's spoonful of sugar - but just as sweet."

“It’s loud, it’s bright, it looks expensive, it has big energy, belly laughs, tunes and tears, plus characters to root for, adorable kids, a truly unforgettable central performance, and a really beautiful message about the importance of finding your family, whether or not it’s a conventional one.”

“Completely joyous to watch and beautiful at its heart, this is a show with an important message that is carried off beautifully...the one aspect that makes this production a triumph is the lead performance by Gabriel Vick – completely outstanding and one everybody needs to see to believe. I’m left with absolutely no doubt that ‘Mrs Doubtfire’ Is going to be a hit.”
