Mrs. Doubtfire is an absolute masterpiece of comedy and drama. It narrates the story of a man who has lost almost everything following a divorce. What makes this plot special is how he does not give up and lets his desperation and love for his kids turn him into a Scottish nanny. The musical is a hysterically funny and emotional one with brilliant direction by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks. This is a heartwarming musical that will make you feel happy throughout.
Mrs. Doubtfire tells the story of Daniel, a divorced actor, and father of 3 children. The divorce ends up with him losing custody of his kids. In his desperation to keep them close, he disguises himself as Mrs. Doubtfire, an aging female Scottish housekeeper, so that he can work in his ex-wife's house and spend more time with his children. His ex-wife and his children are, of course, completely fooled by the deception, leading to poignancy when he hears himself discussed by them. It all works out well but how long can this go on?
