The team brought together to produce the Mrs. Doubtfire musical had a huge job to do. Not only did they have to adjust a classic 1993 film for a Broadway stage, but they also had to both honor Robin Williams’ role in the film while making something new for fans to savour. Director Jerry Zaks was confident that he could more than fulfil these dual needs. First, he expanded the story and worked with Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick to compose a score that would capture the imaginations of audiences and deliver on the promise of the breathtaking story. From the moment “Pizza Rolls” plays to the finale, “As long as there is love”, the cast creates a story that is both relatable and absurd while also sincere and charming. Rob McClure’s portrayal of Mrs. Doubtfire/Daniel Hillard leads the cast in delivering their lines with passion and sincerity that you don’t often find in adaptations of Hollywood films. But even with the talent’s abilities, they couldn’t possibly create a more fulfilling experience without the expert writing from Karey Patrick and John O’Farrell. Every line, whether borrowed or modified from the original film, tells us more about these characters than many audiences would have gained by rewatching the movie. When the play reopens at the illustrious Stephen Sondheim Theater, you can trust that your time will be well spent with Mrs. Doubtfire – The Musical.
