About Mrs. Doubtfire the Musical Tickets

Mrs. Doubtfire the Musical description

Mrs Doubtfire – The Musical

Were you brought up on a diet of Mrs Doubtfire? The magical 1993 American comedy-drama film directed by Chris Columbus delighted millions of people of every age, created for the movie screen by Randi Mayem Singer and Leslie Dixon. Now there's a stage musical version due in London for 2021. And by all accounts it is absolutely brilliant!

You adored the 1993 film. Now it's due in London, a brand new musical based on the fabulous novel Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine. Robin Williams played the starring movie role, a comedian whose antics are sadly missed. Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Harvey Fierstein and Robert Prosky completed the movie line-up. Now it's due on the West End stage for 2023, a huge treat for fans of the film and serious fun for anyone who doesn't already know the story.

What's the plot?

Meet Mrs. Doubtfire, poppets. She is here to make everything better!

Daniel Hillard is a struggling, out-of-work actor. He's broke but he would do absolutely anything for his kids, moving mountains if needs be.

Daniel loses custody of his children after a messy divorce. He can't bear to be away from them so he disguises himself as the eccentric Scottish nanny called Euphegenia Doubtfire. But his desperate attempt to stay in their lives at all costs has unexpected consequences. When the persona he has created starts to take on a life of her own, she teaches Daniel a whole lot more than he expected about how to be a dad.

This story is as funny as it is touching, both hilarious and heartfelt. If you'd like to explore what it means to lose your loved ones, then find them again, this one is for you.

Mrs. Doubtfire really is the next massive family musical hit, and it'll be with us some time in 2023.

The Creative Team

The Mrs. Doubtfire book is by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell. The music and lyrics come from Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick, who make up the dazzling Tony nominated team behind Something Rotten!. Direction is by the four-Tony winning Jerry Zaks, who wowed us with his work on Hello, Dolly. The choreography comes from Lorin Latarro of Waitress fame and music supervision comes from Ethan Popp, who delighted audiences with his work on Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.

Nostalgia? Yes please!

Anyone who loved the film will adore the musical. The costume designer Catherine Zuber and the hair and wig designer David Brian Brown bring the character to life on stage in the most brilliant way, and the adult themes of divorce and fatherhood are handled warmly with humour. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Book tickets as soon as you can!

Who is this show for?

This splendidly funny musical is probably best for people aged 12 and over.

One of many musicals based of films, and it is fine... It is sometime funny, but there are no songs that really sticks out. The actor playing Lydia was amazing

Fab Show

Having been to many musicals I must admit I wasn't too sure whether my 10 year daughter and I would find Mrs Doubtfire as good as some of the classics. However I was so wrong. It's extremely funny, true to the film in story line and costume was superb. We have a fab time and would highly recommend.

Review: MRS DOUBTFIRE at Shaftesbury Theatre

by Stuart King | Tuesday, September 26 2023, 08:13

Due to other commitments, I was unavailable to attend the June press night for the stage musical version of Robin Williams’ smash hit film from 1993. Rectifying that situation last evening, I can report that the show not only lives up to the expectations of the movie, but adds an extra layer of musical energy and playfulness to the heartwarming and funny story of a dad who finds a new (if bizarre) way to stay connected with his children after divorce.
