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 2021, 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 2021.
