Mrs. Doubtfire

Performance Date

Mrs. Doubtfire, like all brand-new musicals, is still being developed and its script will be undergoing changes during the rehearsal process.

Mrs. Doubtfire is based on the classic 1993 comedy film (which starred Robin Williams) in which a fun-loving but irresponsible father, faced with losing custody of his children, impersonates the perfect nanny in order to be with his family. Mrs. Doubtfire is suitable for most audience members: concerned parents and theatergoers should peruse the following advisories carefully.

Brief and Partial Nudity: The audience sees a fleeting glimpse of an impulsive and prank-playing character’s bare butt as he moons the other characters.

Adult Language: This is mild for the most part.  “Goddam” is heard a couple of times; also, “crap,” “damn it,” “piss you off,” “hell,” and “shit” (heard several times) are used when characters are frustrated.  “Asshole” is also used as a character fights off a mugger.

Sexual References: These are also mild; sexual innuendoes are not explicit, but rather implied (sample: “Oh, wake up and smell the pheromones, dear. Business? Funny business. His dividends won’t be the only thing on the rise”).

Alcohol/Drugs: A character’s apartment is full of empty beer cans. Characters are seen drinking wine with dinner.

Violence/Scariness: A character goes after other characters (who prove to be hallucinations) with a skillet, a knife, and other implements; the effect is humorous rather than alarming.
