Based on the 1993 Robin Williams film of the same name, Mrs. Doubtfire follows Daniel Hillard, the father of three children — Lydia, Christopher, and Natalie. Divorced from his wife and seldom able to see his kids, he disguises himself as an elderly British nanny and gets hired at his own former household in order to see them more. Jerry Zaks directs the musical, which features a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell; music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick; and choreography by Lorin Latarro.
