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.

Performance overall was good. The accents and actors were great. The music could be better, the songs were all similar, none really stuck/were memorable.

This show was absolutely fantastic. The cast were amazing

My 15 year old enjoyed how immersive the story was done. My 9 year old found it very entertaining but found some words difficult…. Like ‘shit’. I was the adult in the group… I found some elements of the dancing as too long. We all enjoyed the totality… just some elements… not quite right for us.

Brilliant. So funny

We laughed and cried! Could not have asked for more. The cast were phenomenal

What a fabulous performance. A wonderful homage to the amazing talents of the late great Robin Williams and the original film. The adaptation to stage was so clever and brilliant, with modern twists and updated for the 21st century audience. Well done to all the cast and crew. We had the best night.

If you love musical theatre, then this is definitely a fun evening for the family. If you also loved the movie starring Robin Williams then you will be familiar with the heart warming storyline created into this clever musical. A brilliant cast performance including actor Gabriel Vick who portrayed the role of Daniel Hillard by performing his character impressively with energy, adding voice impressions (of modern, well known characters) and deviously slid in hilarious jokes on current affairs. Highly recommended!

The lead actor was excellent!
Jul 16, 2023
Thoroughly enjoyed the show yesterday. Loved how it was portrayed on the stage. The scenery was so good and all the actors played their parts so well. Had such a fantastic time. Shame I could only afford 2 tickets for me and my daughter as at £93 each it really is a lot of money to part with but something we will remember and talk about for a long time.

Everything about the show was professional and extremly entertaining. Although we had seats at the back of the theatre the view was very good.

When I walked by the theatre where "Mrs. Doubtfire" is played I always wondered why people should attend a show with only one old lady on the posters, but now I know: This musical is one of the best live entertainment I saw in many years! Although not all songs are catchy, the story is very funny, clever and the cast makes it a real joy to watch every single second because of good jokes, smart conversations and great dances. There is no moment where one could lose interest or feel bored which I really appreciate. All in all I highly recommend this musical to everybody coming to London - if you are not sure and have doubts, read the play's synopsis online and you will quickly realise that the story can only be extremely funny and entertaining, yet it is very emotional and suitable both for children and adults.

I went to see Mrs. Doubtfire with my husband & 12-year-old son. It’s a favourite family movie of ours. We all absolutely loved the theatre adaptation. All the actors were fabulous & I loved the modernisation of the dialogue to make for relevant for 2023

An amazing show cast and lead cast outstanding thankyou
Jun 22, 2023
I was sooo looking forward to Mrs Doubtfire I choose this show as a birthday gift. Glad I saw it no I wouldn’t recommend even thought about leaving half way through the show. I thought it was far too long and just filling the gap before another show takes its place. It was funny it parts but so boring in other it just went on and on. A lot of talent on that stage wasted on this…. Definitely wouldn’t see again and would not recommend this show. Theatre was very uncomfortable to….. Disappointed ☹️
Jun 17, 2023
One of the best shows I ever seen, with Mrs Doubtfire as good as Robin Williams. Absolutely brilliant and had everyone laughing in their seats. The rest of the cast also perfectly supported.Recommend this show which I challenge anyone to not enjoy.

My daughter and I had a really lovely afternoon at the matinée of this show. The cast were superb and whilst the principals were brilliant, we give a massive round of applause to the members of the chorus. You made the production look like there were 30 odd of you!! Of course the band were just amazing. Our toes were certainly tapping along. We'll done everyone backstage crew, sound and light, all the unseen hero's!! Highly recommended 👏👏.

we loved the film so were not sure what to expect. It was a wonderful show - so much talent on that stage and Gabriel Vick was absolutely outstanding. The children were incredible too - as were the whole cast. We loved the music and laughed a lot! A real tonic. Would thoroughly recommend the show.
