The highly acclaimed Mrs. Doubtfire musical has exciting news for its West End fans, as it extends its run at the Shaftesbury Theatre. The production, which has been a smash hit since its London premiere in May 2023, is now scheduled to entertain audiences until at least September 2024, offering an even longer window for theater enthusiasts to catch this captivating show.
This extension comes in response to the overwhelmingly positive reception from both critics and theatergoers, prompting the production team to provide more opportunities for viewers to enjoy the magic of Mrs. Doubtfire on stage.
In a playful announcement on the musical's Instagram page, they shared, "Our nanny has spruced up some seats especially for you!" The heartwarming story follows Daniel, an unemployed actor who goes to great lengths to maintain a connection with his children after a messy divorce. He transforms into the beloved Scottish nanny, Euphegenia Doubtfire, resulting in a journey of self-discovery and fatherhood lessons.
Based on the beloved film starring Robin Williams, the musical first graced the UK stage at Manchester's Opera House in September 2022, where it played to sold-out audiences, before making its triumphant debut on Broadway. Now, with this extension, more theatergoers will have the chance to experience the charm and humor of Mrs. Doubtfire live on stage in the heart of the West End.
