“Soars from screen to stage!” – The Times
TimeOut London shared a very positive experience from the West End’s production. In the review, they said: “Ultimately, this show reaches a conclusion that’s both warm and unsaccharine: family is what you make it. How refreshing, in a world where the ’90s cultural interest in divorce and alternative families has given way to a backward-looking cultural fixation with stories about happy mummies and daddies. ‘Mrs Doubtfire’ feels like it melds the best of past and present, offering a dose of nostalgia that’s more complicated than Mary Poppins’s spoonful of sugar – but just as sweet.”
Based on all the rave reviews this Broadway production has receives throughout its run, you should definitely make it a point to see it for yourself.
