Lovingly based on the hit film, poppets!


Mrs. Doubtfire is now dazzling and delighting audiences at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre! This ‘genuinely funny comedy musical’ (Time Out) based on the beloved film is ‘a surefire hit!’ (The Telegraph, Daily Express). The Telegraph calls it ‘a complete joy’, The Times says it ‘soars from screen to stage’, and City AM hails Mrs. Doubtfire as ‘funny, heart-warming and wildly entertaining!’

Out-of-work actor Daniel will do anything for his kids. After losing custody in a messy divorce, he creates the alter ego of Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As his new character takes on a life of its own, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.

Mrs. Doubtfire has been created by a transatlantic team of award-winning artists, with a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, original music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick (the Tony Award-nominated team behind Something Rotten!, along with O’Farrell), direction by 4-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks (Hello, Dolly!), scenic design by David Korins (Hamilton), choreography by Lorin Latarro (Waitress), and music supervision by Ethan Popp (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical).

On occasion, the role of Daniel Hillard will be played by Rhys Owen. For further information, contact the Box Office at boxoffice@shaftesburytheatre.com.
