The new musical comedy Mrs. Doubtfire, currently in previews at Broadway's Stephen Sondheim Theatre, will be crossing the pond for its U.K. premiere in 2022. The show will play a limited engagement at the Manchester Opera House September 2–October 1.

The musical, based on the 1993 movie about an out-of-work father who disguises himself as a British nanny to spend more time with his children, features a score by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick and a book co-written by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell (the writing team behind Something Rotten!). Four-time tony winner Jerry Zaks directs, with choreography by Lorin Latarro with music supervision by Ethan Popp.

Casting for the British bow will be announced later; on Broadway, the title role (or rather, the role of Daniel Hillard, who dons the disguise of the title role) is played by Tony nominee Rob McClure.

The show has a scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Philip Rosenberg, sound design by Brian Ronan, hair and wig design by David Brian Brown, and make-up design by Tommy Kurzman.

Mrs. Doubtfire is produced by Kevin McCollum and Jamie Wilson, presented by special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical.
