Lovingly based on the hit film, poppets!

Mrs. Doubtfire is now dazzling and delighting audiences at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre! This ‘genuinely funny comedy musical’ (Time Out) based on the beloved film is ‘a surefire hit!’ (The Telegraph, Daily Express). The Telegraph calls it ‘a complete joy’, The Times says it ‘soars from screen to stage’, and City AM hails Mrs. Doubtfire as ‘funny, heart-warming and wildly entertaining!’

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).

On occasion, the role of Daniel Hillard will be played by Rhys Owen. For further information, contact the Box Office at

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by and seated with a ticketholder who is at least 18 years old.

Front of House staff will look after a wheelchair for any patron wishing to transfer into a seat; it will be brought to the user during the interval and at the end of the performance. When booking, please state if you are a wheelchair user so that our Box Office staff can ensure the best seats are available.

The Theatre also has its own wheelchair that is available for anyone who may require it. Please let the Box Office know if you would like to make use of the wheelchair when you book.


The Theatre is equipped with an infra-red system and headsets are available on request; please speak to our Front of House team when you arrive if you require one.

There are metered bays on High Holborn, opposite the Theatre, which are available to Disabled person’s Blue Badge holders.


The Shaftesbury Theatre regularly presents assisted performances; please ask the Box Office for details. Captioned performances are generally provided by StageText, British Sign Language interpreted performances by Theatre Sign and Audio Described performances by VocalEyes.

The following information on assisted performances has been provided by the SOLT Access Theatre brochure.

Captioning is similar to subtitling. At a captioned performance the words are displayed on a screen(s) placed near the stage or in the set and can be seen at the same time as they are spoken or sung. Speakers’ names, sound effects and offstage noises are also shown. A trained captioner prepares the script in advance to mirror the rhythm and flow of the performance and the captions are delivered live as the action happens on stage.

At Sign Language Interpreted Performances an interpreter will stand in a clearly visible position and interpret the spoken and heard aspects of the show.

Audio Description is a live verbal commentary providing information on the visual elements of a production as it unfolds. It describes action that is essential to the understanding of the story, as well as other visual information such as the style and design, sets, costumes, facial expressions and visual jokes. The description is delivered around the dialogue of a performance and patrons listen to it through a discreet headset.
