OUTSTANDING FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Just what is needed in December 2021! It made me laugh, at times cry, and oftentimes wanna dance! It is what Broadway is meant to be. Surely not a “woke” production but something entertaining!! Not everything has to be intellectual!! This was just plain old fun!

5.0 star rating L Golding from Detroit, Michigan

OUTSTANDING!!

We throughly enjoyed Mrs. Doubtfire in Detroit. I had a huge smile on my face the entire play. Rob McClure was beyond great in the lead role! The other cast members were so talented. We loved it!

5.0 star rating Susan Kessler Capriotti from Lebanon Pennsylvania

A MUST SEE FOR ALL AGES!!!

One of the funniest musicals we’ve even seen!! The vocals and song lyrics were amazing! The dancers only made enhanced every scene for the audience- and the performances of all the cast members were spot on! We highly recommend this for all ages! As a retired early education teacher, a highlight for me was Daniel’s (Rob McClure) solo “It’s About Time”…OMGoodness!!! Lololol Well done EVERYONE: cast, orchestra, dance choreographers, music, lyrics….!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻❤️❤️❤️

ONE OF MY TOP 10 PLAYS

I loved it. The cast was great and it was funny with a good mix of music. The main actor, who played the father, was great. The entire cast was great, but he had to do all the different voices for all of his alternate identities and he did it well.

ROBIN WILLIAMS IS SMILING DOWN ON THIS PRODUCTION

Before I arrived I couldn't imagine anyone being able to assume Williams' famous Mrs. Doubtfire role, but McClure pulls it off excellently. He is able to skillfully play both characters, going back and forth with ease and hilarity. I found myself smiling throughout the whole musical and laughing out loud in parts.

OVERPRICED

The show was well done and we enjoyed but feel we paid way too much for center orchestra tickets. We were higher up and I couldn’t really see the actors clearly without binoculars. I also couldn’t hear some of the lines. Paid $200 a ticket and it was not worth that.

DIDN'T THRILL ME

Nothing memorable about the music. Mask used didn't fit correctly. Too much red in the mask. Not the worst show I've seen, but sure wouldn't see it again. Needs work before Broadway.

INCORRECT PLOT

If you write a remake of a play, you need to get your facts straight. In the Robin Williams, Mrs Doubtfire was not from Scotland, when Mrs Doubtfire was introduced to the family, and talking to Miranda Hillard over tea, Mrs Doubtfire says she's from England. Thanks

SHALLOW AT BEST, SHAMEFUL AT WORST

To be clear: I have a fond nostalgia for the original movie. Robin Williams' portrayal was, despite some questionable methods, endearing and sympathetic as a father who is determined to improve for his family. This new production left me so unnerved that I had to look up the original synopsis as I started to question my memory of the movie. After reviewing, I am not only doubtless that the show-runners of this show have given us a production undeniably inferior to the original, but they also managed to insert themes and caricatures so outdated that I am alarmed by how many people green-lit it. I can almost forgive shows for not taking their audiences seriously, but the constant, unsubtle sexist tropes of of the "boring & heartless" mother aimed at Miranda, and the numerous homophobic tropes written for the husband of Daniel's brother are unforgivable and dangerous in this setting. Also, Daniel getting most of the opening songs is manipulative, and the score is entirely forgettable.
