The Story of Mrs Doubtfire

The musical comedy is an adaptation of the 1993 popular film starring the beloved Robin Williams as Daniel Hillard. It also starred Sally Field as Miranda Hillard and Pierce Brosnan as Stuart Dunmeyer. The movie tells the story of divorcing parents in the 90s.

Following the split of their marriage, out of work voice artist Daniel Hillard struggles to be away from his three children. To spend time with his kids, he opts for an unorthodox choice – to become a housekeeper. Fortunately, his ex-wife, Miranda Hillard, unknowingly hires him.

Daniel’s alter ego, Euphegenia Doubtfire is a Scottish nanny. The new character takes on a life of its own and teaches Daniel more about being a father. This hilarious and heartfelt film made $441.3 million at the box office against a budget of $25 million. Today, it’s easily one of the best movies ever made.

Mrs Doubtfire the Musical Cast

The cast of Mrs Doubtfire the Musical UK is yet to be announced. However, Jerry Zaks, a four-time Tony Award-winning director, brings the smash-hit musical comedy to the stage. Original lyrics and music are by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick. Both are Tony award-nominated creators behind Something Rotten!

Scenic design is by David Korins, music supervision by Ethan Popp and choreography by Lorin Latarro.
