WELCOME BACK POPPETS!!! Things are once again about to be EASY PEASY as full casting has been revealed for the musical adaptation of Mrs. Doubtfire on Broadway this Fall. Under the direction of Jerry Zaks, the cast will once again be led by…..
Tony Award nominee Rob McClure (Broadway’s Avenue Q, Chaplin, and Something Rotten) as newly divorced actor “Daniel Hillard” and his incognito alter-ego “Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire”,
Broadway favorite Jenn Gambatese (Hairspray, All Shook Up, Tarzan, WICKED, and School of Rock) as his newly divorced wife “Miranda Hillard”,
Tony nominee Brad Oscar (The Producers, Young Frankenstein, and Something Rotten) as his makeup artist brother extraordinaire “Frank Hillard”,
Newcomer Analise Scarpaci as his older daughter “Lydia Hillard”,
Young Broadway veteran Jake Ryan Flynn as his son “Christopher Hillard”,
newcomer Avery Sell as his youngest daughter “Natalie Hillard”,
Broadway veteran J Harrison Ghee (Kinky Boots) as “Andre”,
Broadway and West End favorite Mark Evans (The Book of Mormon, Ghost the Musical, Wicked, and more) as the new love interest for “Miranda” herself “Stuart Dunmeyer”,
Broadway favorite Charity AngĂ©l Dawson (currently in the return of Waitress) as “Wanda Sellner”,
Broadway veteran Peter Bartlett (Beauty and the Beast, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, She Loves Me, and Something Rotten) as “Mr. Jolly”,
and
a full Ensemble.
No word was said though who from the Ensemble will be playing the role of “Janet Lundy” The role was initially performed by the late Doreen Montalvo who sadly passed away last year from a stroke. It breaks our heart for the entire company of MRS. DOUBTFIRE. However, we know every performance will be a dedication to this celebrated performer. RIP.
Following a successful out-of-town tryout in Seattle in 2019, MRS. DOUBTFIRE: THE MUSICAL originally began Broadway previews on March 9th, 2020 and was slated to have its Opening Night on April 5th, 2020. However, the entire production was abruptly shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic after only 3 preview performances here on the Great Bright Way.
However, it will be back stronger than ever AS LONG AS THERE IS LOVE. The show will resume Broadway previews on October 21st, 2021 and finally reach its official Opening Night on December 5th, 2021 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
Who is excited?!!!
