An industry reading of the Broadway-aimed Mrs. Doubtfire musical will take place May 16 and 17. The cast will include Tony nominees Rob McClure (Broadway's current Beetlejuice) and Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!), as well as stage and screen favorite Mario Cantone, Playbill has learned.
As previously reported, the musical will feature a book by John O'Farrell and Karey Kirkpatrick, with the latter penning the score with brother Wayne Kirkpatrick (the trio previously collaborated on the musical comedy Something Rotten!). Jerry Zaks will direct.
Rounding out the company are Michael James Scott (currently playing the Genie—another Robin Williams role—in Broadway's Aladdin), Dear Evan Hansen's Mallory Bechtel, Cameron Adams, Peter Bartlett, Tracee Beazer, Catherine Brunell, Nick Rashad Burroughs, Kaleigh Cronin, Charity Angél Dawson, Mark Evans, Jake Ryan Flynn, David Hibbard, Aaron Kaburick, Avery Sell, Brian Shepard, Pearl Sun, Ryan VanDenBoom, and Aléna Watters.
Kevin McCollum produces. No word yet on an official premiere of the show, based on the 1993 comedy (in turn inspired by Anne Fine's novel Alias Madame Doubtfire).
