Mrs Doubtfire musical set to have UK premiere in 2022

The musical version of hit film Mrs Doubtfire will arrive in the UK in 2022, it has been confirmed.

Currently playing at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Broadway, the piece is penned by Wayne Kirkpatrick, Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell and based on the Twentieth Century Studios movie. It follows a down-and-out actor who creates an “alter ego” in the form of Euphegenia Doubtfire to stay close to his children.

The new musical is based on the hit Robin Williams film

Mrs Doubtfire is directed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks, and runs at the Manchester Opera House on Friday 2 September 2022, with a strictly limited season through until Saturday 1 October.

Casting is to be revealed, while the creative team features scenic designer David Korins (Hamilton), choreographer Lorin Latarro (Waitress), and music supervisor Ethan Popp (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical).

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!”
