Mrs. Doubtfire Musical Headed to Broadway In 2020

Image result for mrs doubtfire musical logoOne of my favorite shows from this decade was Something Rotten, which in case you didn't see it, was one of the funniest shows to hit Broadway in years. Set in 1595, Something Rotten, told the story of the Bottom Brothers, who struggle to find success in the theatre world due to their main competition. One William Shakespeare.

Now I know what you're thinking. What in the world does this have to do with Mrs. Doubtfire? Well I'll tell you.The shows authors, Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick, and John O'Farrell, are the same writers of Something Rotten. Now do you see why I'm so excited? The show, which is based on 1993 Robin William's film of the same name, is set to begin previews at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on March 9, with opening night scheduled for April 5. Directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, and choreographed by Lorin Lattaro, Mrs. Doubtfire, will have it's world premier at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre beginning on November 26, with opening night set for December 13.

Starring in the title role is Tony Award nominee Rob McClure (Beetlejuice, Honeymoon In Vegas). Joining him are Jenn Gambatese as Miranda Hillard, Tony Award nominee Brad Oscar as Frank Hillard, Analise Scarpaci as Lydia Hillard, Jake Ryan Flynn as Christopher Hillard, Avery Sellas as Natalie Hillard, J. Harrison Ghee as Andre, Mark Evans as Stuart Dunmeyer, Charity Angel Dawson as Wanda Sellner, and Peter Bartlett as Mr. Jolly.

Now I'll be honest. I have never seen the film. Don't get me wrong. I am a huge Robin Williams fan. Although if I'm being honest, I have always preferred his more dramatic work like "The World According To Garp", "Dead Poet's Society", and of course his Academy Award performance in "Good Will Hunting". But like I said, " Something Rotten was one of my favorite shows of the last decade.".Here's hoping their new one is just as good. Fingers crossed.

Tickets for the Seattle engagement are now on sell. The Broadway run, is scheduled to go on sale on November 1. Oh and did I mention that we will be selling tickets for both? Well we will. In fact, we are selling tickets to every new play and musical set to open this season. Get your tickets to see Mrs. Doubtfire on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, and at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle. Until next time theatre fans.
