The last few weeks have not been kind to Broadway with the closure of performances such as “Diana The Musical”, “Waitress”, “Jagged Little Pill”, “Thoughts Of A Colored Man”, “Trevor The Musical” and most recently “Ain’t Too Proud”. Now “Diana The Musical” was being sunset before the virus surge but it was Omicron that found the likes of “Jagged” and “ATP” to wrap it up despite having open ended runs ahead of them. Earlier we learned the news that the comedy musical “Mrs Doubfire – The Musical” would be going on a nine week hiatus.
“Out of concern for the potential long-term employment of everyone who works on Mrs. Doubtfire, and the extended run of the show, we have decided that following the January 9 performance, the production will close for nine weeks, returning on March 15. Mrs. Doubtfire has been in development for six years. By taking this break we can afford to launch an extended run starting in March. I would like to express my profound and unending admiration for our extraordinary cast, crew, orchestra, creative team, and entire company. They have risen to every challenge thrown at them over the last two years with a remarkable amount of resilience, good humor, grit, and love for one another. They embody the indomitable spirit of Broadway. I cannot wait for audiences to continue to enjoy what they have created in March!” — Producer Kevin McCollum
About: Mrs. Doubtfire is a musical with music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick and a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell. It is based on the 1993 film of the same name.
