It’s a tale as old as time: a divorced man has lost custody of his children and is so desperate to see them that he poses as an elderly housekeeper. Now, if that doesn’t make for a cracking West End comedy musical, we don’t know what will.

Mrs Doubtfire: The New Comedy Musical is heading to the Shaftesbury Theatre next spring following its UK debut at Manchester’s Opera House in September this year. It had a sold-out run and the musical has garnered rave reviews, with The Telegraph calling it: "Rip-roaringly funny! Sharp, smart and full of heart," and the Chicago Tribune describing it as "a lovable, big-hearted musical comedy".

The team behind Mrs Doubtfire: The New Comedy Musical has the power to make the musical every bit as successful as the film — which won two Golden Globe Awards and an Academy Award. It brings together Tony Award-winning director Jerry Zaks with Hamilton’s scenic designer David Korins and Waitress choreographer Lorin Latarro.

Plus, if the West End performances are every bit as successful as the Manchester ones, dare we speak into existence a UK-wide tour?
