"Absolutely amazing!"

"This show appealed to me, but my friend had reservations. She didn`t know how it could become a musical.After a gentle persuasion we booked, well?. We both really enjoyed this show! Cannot rate it highly enough. I bought a program, and once we got back to the hotel we noticed that the part of Daniel hillard was played by the understudy Rhys Owen. The whole cast was wonderful but he STOOD out."...


"Truly wonderful, superb acting music and comedy. I would recommend to anyone."...

About the show

The Show
Based on the wildly successful Robin Williams film from 1993, Mrs. Doubtfire is a hysterical musical story of family, fatherhood and fun. When Actor Daniel Hillard - divorced, unemployed and desperate - loses custody of his three children, he is anxious to prove he can provide for his family. Determined to stay close to his kids (and to prove he can work a steady job), Daniel hatches a plan: he decides to pose as Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, an elderly and cantankerous Scottish woman who works as the children's nanny. Armed with only his acting talent, a vacuum cleaner, and an alarming grey wig provided by his brother Frank, Daniel begins to work his way back into his children's lives. But he discovers along the way that he still has a lot to learn about being a father, and that Mrs. Doubtfire may be the perfect person to teach him. With 17 original songs and dozens of laugh-out-loud moments, this delightful family musical is set to warm the hearts of audiences for years to come.

History of Mrs. Doubtfire
The lasting popularity of the 1993 film made Mrs. Doubtfire fertile ground for remakes and adaptations. American producer Kevin McCollum first raised the idea of a musical version in a New York Times interview in 2013, calling the show 'tailor-made for Broadway audiences.' He was proven right after the premiere in 2019, when audience demand led to the show's initial two-week run being extended, and again in Manchester in 2022, where the Opera House performance was met with standing ovations by enraptured audiences. The much-anticipated West End debut at the Shaftesbury Theatre is set to continue the show's success.

Awards and What the Critics Say
Since opening in Seattle in 2019, Mrs. Doubtfire has delighted critics on both sides of the Atlantic. New York Stage writer Chris Jones praised the script as 'very funny,' and Dianne Bourne of the Manchester Evening News raved about the 2022 show's surprising emotional impact, writing that there were 'moments when I was near falling off my chair roaring with laughter...or being comforted by my friend alongside me as tears streamed down my face.' The show has also been nominated for multiple awards - the iconic Mrs. Doubtfire costume netted the 2022 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Wig and Hair Design.
