Mrs Doubtfire Musical headed to UK next Autumn

The musical version of the hit film Mrs Doubtfire is due to open at Manchester Opera House on Friday 2 September 2022, with a strictly limited season  until Saturday 1 October. It was first seen in 2019 in Seattle, where it ended up breaking the record for bestselling new musical in the history of The 5th Avenue Theatre.

Mrs Doubtfire is is currently playing at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Broadway, directed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks . The musical is based on the Twentieth Century Studios comedy movie starring Robin Williams following 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.

The show has been written by Wayne Kirkpatrick, Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell with a creative team including scenic designer David Korins (Hamilton), choreographer Lorin Latarro (Waitress), and music supervisor Ethan Popp (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical). Casting is still to be announced

Producers Kevin McCollum and Jamie Wilson said: "We are thrilled to announce that Mrs Doubtfire will make its UK premiere next year. Manchester is one of the great cities of theatre, and we can't wait to bring Mrs Doubtfire to the Opera House. We hope audiences will take this hilarious and touching show to their hearts, and promise a great evening for everyone!
