The musical features a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell and music and lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick, the Tony Award-nominated team behind Something Rotten! Four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks (Hello, Dolly!) will direct and Lorin Latarro (Waitress) will choreograph. Ethan Popp (Tina) will serve as Music Supervisor. The musical, based on the Twentieth Century Fox Motion Picture, will be produced by multi-Tony Award winner Kevin McCollum (Avenue Q, Rent, In The Heights, Something Rotten!).

Harrison Ghee as Andre, Mark Evans as Stuart Dunmeyer, Charity Angél Dawson as Wanda Sellner and Peter Bartlett as Mr. Jolly. Further casting will be announced at a later date.
Producer Kevin McCollum said, "It's great to be back with Karey, Wayne and John - and working with Jerry has been a dream of mine. They do comedy and family like no one else - and bringing this beloved story to life as a hilarious and touching musical comedy is an irresistible opportunity."
Prior to Broadway, Mrs. Doubtfire will have its world premiere at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre, running from Tuesday, November 26 to Sunday, December 29. Mrs. Doubtfire marks the 22nd new musical produced by The 5th Avenue Theatre and is the 10th to go on to receive a Broadway premiere.
The creative team for Mrs. Doubtfire includes David Korins (Scenic Design), Catherine Zuber (Costume Design) Philip Rosenberg (Lighting Design), Brian Ronan (Sound Design) and David Brian Brown (Hair & Wig Design). When out-of-work actor Daniel Hillard loses custody of his kids in a divorce, he disguises himself as Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As he gets lost in his new persona and grows closer to his kids, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.

5 Shows You Didn’t Know Were Based on Books
Page-to-stage adaptations are hardly a novel idea. After all, the longest-running musical in West End history, Les Misérables, is based on the 19th-century novel by Victor Hugo. The second longest, The Phantom of the Opera, is also adapted from a historical work of fiction. However, you may not know these musicals are also based on books. We’ll need a bigger wardrobe for all our potential World Book Day outfits, especially if we’re going to fit Anna’s dress in it!
