“All in all, this is a musical comedy for all the family and should do well. It’s a big fat yes from me!"
Thirty years from Robin William’s portrayal of Mrs Doubtfire on the silver screen, Mrs Doubtfire has crossed the pond to take up residence at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End. The show is packed with fast moving, quick changes – not only from the leading actor, but also by the set, the ensemble and indeed the variety of music styles employed to tell the story.
The story leans heavily, as you would expect, on the 1993 movie, with some interesting updates. The gags are topical and seem to travel back and forth across the Atlantic without any sense of irony or apology.
