Fresh from his acclaimed run in Beetlejuice, Tony nominee Rob McClure (Chaplin) returns to Broadway in another musical made from a movie. He’s landed the title role in Mrs. Doubtfire, taking on the Robin Williams character from the 1993 hit screen comedy about a struggling actor who disguises himself as an eccentric Scottish nanny in order to stay in his kids’ lives after losing custody in a nasty divorce. The songwriting team behind the recent Broadway hit Something Rotten! is back for Doubtfire, which features a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, and music and lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick. Direction is by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks (Hello, Dolly!), and choreography is by Lorin Latarro (Waitress).
