Broadway's Mrs. Doubtfire has hit the road with, in a rare occurrence, its Tony-nominated star reprising his performance in the title role. Rob McClure leads the national tour, which launched last month in Buffalo, New York. Get a first look at the production in newly released production shots below.
McClure is joined by Maggie Lakis as Miranda Hillard plus Giselle Gutierrez as Lydia Hillard, Aaron Kaburick as Frank Hillard, Nik Alexander as Andre Mayem, Leo Roberts as Stuart Dunmire, Romelda Teron Benjamin as Wanda Sellner, Cody Sawyer Braverman and Axel Bernard Rimmele as Christopher Hillard, and Emerson Mae Chan and Kennedy Alexandra Pitney as Natalie Hillard.
The ensemble includes David Hibbard, Alex Branton, Jonathan Hoover, Sheila Jones, Julie Kavanagh, Jodi Kimura, Marquez Linder, Alex Ringler, Bianca Rivera-Irions, Lannie Rubio, Neil Starkenberg, Lauryn Withnell, and Julia Yameen. Swings Joey Stone and Gina Ward round out the company.
Along with McClure, Kaburick, Hibbard, and Kimura were also members of the Broadway company.
Based on the 1993 film, Mrs. Doubtfire follows out-of-work actor Daniel Hillard, who transforms himself into a geriatric, Scottish woman so that he can be hired as a nanny for his own children after losing custody in a divorce. The work, which features a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell and music and lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick, premiered at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre in 2019, making the jump to Broadway in 2021. A West End debut began in May following the musical's U.K. premiere in Manchester last fall.
Mrs. Doubtfire is directed by Jerry Zaks and features choreography by Lorin Latarro; music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp; scenic design by David Korins; costume design by Catherine Zuber; lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg; sound design by Brian Ronan; hair and wig design by David Brian Brown; and casting by The Telsey Office's Craig Burns.
McCollum is producing the tour in association with Work Light Productions, which also serves as executive producer and general manager.
