Euphegenia Doubtfire is coming to Broadway!

A musical adaptation of Robin Williams’ beloved 1993 movie Mrs. Doubtfire is set to hit the Great White Way in March 2020, with an official opening scheduled on April 5.

Rob McClure, who was nominated for a Tony in 2013 for his performance in the title role of the musical Chaplin, is set to star as Daniel Hillard/Euphegenia Doubtfire. He’s currently starring in Beetlejuice on Broadway.

In October of last year, Wilson, Lawrence, Jakub and Brosnan reunited to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary.

Mrs. Doubtfire earned over $200 million at the U.S. box office and grossed over $440 million worldwide after it was made with a budget of about $25 million.
