Direct from a sensational run-up in Manchester — where it played to sold-out crowds and standing ovations — the new comedy musical MRS. DOUBTFIRE is ready to dazzle and delight the West End from 12 May 2023!
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).
A hilarious and heartfelt story about holding onto your loved ones against all odds, MRS. DOUBTFIRE is the musical comedy we need right now.
The original theatre on the site was designed for the brothers Walter and Frederick Melville by Bertie Crewe and opened on 26th December 1911 as The New Prince’s Theatre with a production of The Three Musketeers, and becoming the Prince’s Theatre in 1914. At that time the auditorium had a seating capacity of 2392 and a stage that had a width of 31 feet 10 inches and a depth of 31 feet.
The Shaftesbury Theatre is a West End theatre located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the London Borough of Camden. It was designed by the renowned architect Bertie Crewe and opened its doors in 1911. The venue has a seating capacity of around 1,400 and has been host to many famous productions over the years, including West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, and Hairspray.
Plan ahead: In terms of transportation, Shaftesbury Avenue is one of the main thoroughfares in the West End of London and is served by several modes of transport. The nearest London Underground station is Tottenham Court Road, which is just a few minutes walk away. It is served by the Central and Northern lines. There are also several bus routes nearby including the 14, 19, and 38.
Throughout the years, the theatre and the surrounding area have seen many changes in terms of transportation. For example, in the early 20th century, trams used to run along Shaftesbury Avenue. These were eventually replaced by buses and cars as London’s transport infrastructure evolved.
