Out-of-work actor Daniel will do anything for his kids. After losing custody in a messy divorce, he creates the alter ego of
Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As his new character takes on a life of its own, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.
Mrs. Doubtfire has been created by a transatlantic team of award-winning artists, with a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell and original music and lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick.
