(June 20) – The producers of MRS. DOUBTFIRE announced today that single tickets for the upcoming engagement in Schenectady will go on sale June 22. Mrs. Doubtfire is a part of the 23-24 KeyBank Broadway Series. Tickets are available through the Box Office at Proctors in-person, via phone at (518) 346-6204 Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. or online at proctors.org.

Everyone’s favorite Scottish nanny is headed to Schenectady in an internationally acclaimed new hit musical critics call “wonderful, heart-warming, and laugh-out-loud funny” (Manchester Evening News) and “a feel-good, family-friendly comedy that delivers” (The Hollywood Reporter). Based on the beloved film and directed by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks.

Out-of-work actor Daniel Hillard will do anything for his kids. After losing custody in a messy divorce, he creates the kindly alter ego of Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As his new character takes on a life of its own, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father. A hysterical and heartfelt story about holding onto your loved ones against all odds, MRS. DOUBTFIRE is the musical comedy we need right now – one that proves we’re better together.

MRS. DOUBTFIRE premiered at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre in December 2019. Extended by popular demand, the Seattle engagement shattered the record for a new musical in the history of the 5th Avenue Theatre, selling more than $4.7M in tickets and playing to more than 75,000 people in just 42 performances.

When MRS. DOUBTFIRE first officially opened on Broadway on December 5, 2021, the Chicago Tribune said, “This lovable, big-hearted musical comedy delivers a good time for all ages. The best choice for families on Broadway” and The Telegraph proclaimed “Rip-roaringly funny. A heartfelt adaptation to make Robin Williams proud.”

Before closing on Broadway on May 29, 2022, MRS. DOUBTFIRE received six 2022 Outer Critics Circle Nominations including Outstanding New Broadway Musical, two Drama League Nominations as well as a Tony Nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical.

MRS. DOUBTFIRE opened in London’s West End in June 2023 following a successful engagement in Manchester, UK in Fall of 2022.
