First Look At Rob McClure As Mrs. Doubtfire In Upcoming Musical

He told Entertainment Weekly in a statement: "Euphegenia Doubtfire takes a village. I've got an entire Indianapolis 500 pit crew back there. My dressers and make-up team are superheroes.

"One of the most thrilling differences between the movie and the Broadway show is that we are doing this in real time. When Daniel Hillard runs into the other room and emerges as everyone's favourite Scottish nanny 18 seconds later, our director can't yell cut and send me to a trailer for five hours. We've got 18 seconds. I can feel the audience sweating with me! 'IS HE GONNA MAKE IT?!?'.

"The stakes are so high! It makes for electrifying theatre."

A synopsis of the musical reads: "Daniel Hillard, a struggling, out-of-work actor, will do anything for his kids. After losing custody in a messy divorce, he disguises himself as 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 next big musical comedy for families - of all kinds."

The musical officially opens next month. Credit: Entertainment Weekly/Matthew Murphy
