Why See Mrs. Doubtfire?
She's the nanny we all wanted in the '90s and now she's back to give the 21st century a spin in this brand-new musical adaptation of the beloved 1993 classic. Direct from Broadway, with a stop for previews in Manchester, this glorious production captures the film's original fun and chaos - with added theatrical pizazz. Expect hijinks, hoover dancing, and heart a-plenty as the hilarious story unfolds at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
Created by some of the brightest Broadway talents, Mrs. Doubtfire is directed by Jerry Zaks, features a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farell and music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick.
What's the story?
Starring Sally Fields and the late great Robin Williams, Mrs. Doubtfire was an instant hit on its release, capturing audience's hearts with the story of Daniel, a recently divorced dad who comes up with a novel way to spend more time with his kids - becoming their elderly Scottish nanny - Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire! Charming his way into their lives, he soon becomes a fixture. But when questions start to arise about just who this Mrs. Doubtfire is, it looks like he's gonna need a lot more than a makeover to hide from this fallout.
