Mrs. Doubtfire to Close on Broadway Later This Month

You only have a few weeks left to catch this Scottish nanny on Broadway. The new musical Mrs. Doubtfire will close on Broadway May 29th, 2022, at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

After breaking box office records at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre over the holidays in 2019, Mrs. Doubtfire began preview performances on March 9, 2020, before being shut down three days later by government order in response to the COVID pandemic. Performances of Mrs. Doubtfire resumed on October 21, 2021, and stopped again on January 9, 2022. The final block of performances resumed on April 14, 2022.

Producer Kevin McCollum said, “Even though New York City is getting stronger every day and ticket sales are slowly improving, theatre-going tourists and, especially for our show, family audiences have not returned as soon as we anticipated. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to run the show without those sales, especially when capitalizing with Broadway economics on three separate occasions.”

“I would like to express my profound and unending admiration for our extraordinary Broadway cast, crew, orchestra, creative team, and entire company who brought the show to the stage. They have risen to every challenge thrown at them over the last two years with a remarkable amount of resilience, good humor, passion, and love for one another. I hope audiences will come to the Sondheim over the 20 shows to see and celebrate their remarkable performances.”

A national tour is set to begin in October 2023, and the musical will run September 2 – October 1, 2022, in Manchester, England.

The cast of Mrs. Doubtfire is led by 2022 Tony Award nominee Rob McClure, Jenn Gambatese, Peter Bartlett, Charity Angél Dawson, Mark Evans, J. Harrison Ghee, Analise Scarpaci, Titus Landegger, Tyler Wladis, Austin Elle Fisher, Ava Gail Prince, and Brad Oscar as well as Cameron Adams, Calvin L. Cooper, Kaleigh Cronin, Maria Dalanno, Casey Garvin, David Hibbard, KJ Hippensteel, Aaron Kaburick, Jodi Kimura, Erica Mansfield, Brian Martin, Alexandra Matteo, LaQuet Sharnell Pringle, Renée Reid, Jaquez André Sims, Travis Waldschmidt, and Aléna Watters.

Daniel Hillard, a struggling, out-of-work actor, will do anything for his kids. After losing custody in a messy divorce, he creates the kindly 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. A hysterical and heartfelt story about holding onto your loved ones against all odds, Mrs. Doubtfire is the musical comedy we need right now – one that proves we’re better together.
