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).

    We had a fantastic afternoon watching Mrs Doubtfire. There was a really great balance between the film’s original iconic moments and new, fun parts of the story. The actors were all amazing and we were astonished at the stamina (and talent obviously) of Gabriel Vick who plays Mrs Doubtfire. We will definitely be encouraging friends and family to go and see it.

    Mrs Doubtfire the Musical was indeed a fantastic show and every cast member played their roles brilliantly. The musical numbers were superb, the choreography, the singing, all excellent. I did however, think that the levels between the band and those on stage were not quite right meaning that I struggled to fully hear all the words and a lot of the jokes/funny lines were lost. My other issue is difficult to explain. I felt like some of the cast came across as complacent in their performances and rushed. Each performance should be presented to the audience like it's the first time they have performed it; for most of those in the audience it will have been the first time they have seen it; to me it lacked something and I think it was from how some parts were performed. I would definitely watch it again however and would recommend any to see it.

    The actors were very talented all, the script very imaginative, well worded and funny. The special effects just right — not too much or too noisy. The plot very well constructed visually.
