When the idea of a Mrs. Doubtfire musical was first pitched, fans and critics alike were divided on what to think of the project. Even with the great care and respect given to Robin Williams’ popular film, there was question about whether the play would be suitable for a Broadway stage. This was further discussed when Alan Menken told Digital Spy that the project was on pause due to creative differences. But much like the titular character, this musical was going to do whatever it has to, to reach its dreams. That’s why producer Kevin McCollum was honored to announce that the project was back on track with a completely new creative team that included writer and composer Karey Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick joined an elite creative team that included, John O’Farrel on writing duties, Wayne Kirkpatrick assisting on composing the score, and Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks serving as the productions director. But the show still needed talented actors who could carry the performance and deliver it to a brand new audience. Reviewers agree that the play has succeeded, especially with Rob McClure’s portrayal of Daniel Hillard/Mrs Doubtfire, who manages to capture Robin Williams’ ability to play multiple roles, voice act, and charm the audience with his good-natured demeanour. If you adored the original film, then the producers are confident that you will truly love the musical as well.
