Mrs. Doubtfire Plot

Struggling to cope with his divorce and the loss of custody over his children, voice actor Daniel Hillard spends his days searching for a job and a place to live when one day he sees that his ex-wife has posted a classified ad for a housekeeper and babysitter. Thus, the elderly Scottish nanny Mrs Euphegenia Doubtfire is born.

With the help of his brother Frank, Daniel transforms himself into the perfect “old lady,” complete with a prosthetic mask that allows him to become an integral part of the family.
But as the show unfolds, Daniel’s ruse becomes harder and harder to maintain, especially as he falls deeper in love with his ex-wife all over again.

The Shaftesbury Theatre London is a West End theatre, located on Shaftesbury Avenue, in the London Borough of Camden. It opened in 1911 as the New Prince’s Theatre, with a capacity of 2,500. The current capacity is 1,416. The title “Shaftesbury Theatre” belonged to another theatre lower down the avenue between 1888 and 1941.

The Shaftesbury Theatre London opened as the Princes Theatre on 26 Dec. 1911. The theatre changed its name to the Shaftesbury Theatre in 1962, reopening with the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying which became the theatre’s first long-running musical.

The musical Hair opened in September 1968 when the ban on theatre censorship was lifted, and went on to a run of just under 2,000 performances. The show and theatre were forced to close when parts of the ceiling fell in on 20 Jul. 1973.

Reopening in 1974, the Shaftesbury’s housed a line of musical productions, starting with West Side Story, Rent and Hairspray.

The Shaftesbury Theatre London Seating Plan

The auditorium has three levels – the Stalls, Royal Circle and Grand Circle.

The stall seats are on a very shallow rake which means that sightlines can be problematic

In the Royal Circle, the seats are gently raked which might impact the sightlines depending on certain productions.

The Grand Circle does feel far away from the stage, but the central seats do offer good views of the stage.
