The Mrs. Doubtfire Mainstage Spotlight will take place on Saturday, January 25, at 3 p.m, featuring Jerry Zaks (Director), Lorin Latarro (Choreographer), Rob McClure (Daniel Hillard), Jenn Gambatese (Miranda Hillard), and more, moderated by Gordon Cox, Variety theatre critic and host of the “Stagecraft” podcast.
Both shows will also perform select numbers for BroadwayCon attendees on Friday, January 24 during the BroadwayCon 2020 First Look, an exclusive showcase of performances from the newest and most talked-about shows of the season.
Jagged Little Pill is inspired by the themes and raw emotions laid bare in Alanis Morissette’s seminal album of the same name. Powered by an original story from Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully) this seemingly perfect suburban family strives to hide the cracks beneath the surface when a troubling event shakes their community. Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), Morissette’s groundbreaking music includes “You Oughta Know,” “Head Over Feet,” “Hand In My Pocket,” and “Ironic”, plus songs newly written for the show.
Mrs. Doubtfire follows Daniel Hillard, a struggling, out-of-work actor, who 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 persona begins to take on a life of her 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.
