The Broadway-bound Mrs. Doubtfire, stars Rob McClure in the role made famous by comedy great Robin Williams, in the 1993 film.

McClure appeared on the BroadwayCon panel with co-stars Jenn Gambatese and Charity Angel Dawson, along with director Jerry Zaks and choreographer Lorin Latarro. The show starts previews on March 9th.

The story is about a family navigating through a difficult divorce. The show’s creators were careful to consider the story, about a man who dresses up as a British nanny, due to the sensitive gender identity issues. “We’re not dealing with a transgender character, but that doesn’t mean that if the story is told in an irresponsible way that there can’t be collateral damage to people who could be hurt by it,” McClure has stated. The creators of the show, reached out to transgender artists and activists, asking for guidance yet there still was some backlash at Seattle 5th Ave.

Mrs. Doubtfire opens at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, 124 West 43rd Street on April 5th.

Part 2 of the panel will come tomorrow. This is a three part series.
