HE-LLLOOOOOO!! The 5th Avenue Theatre has announced that Tony-nominated actor, Rob McClure, will star in the title role of the world premiere production of Mrs. Doubtfire this holiday season.
McClure is the acclaimed actor who received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of Charlie Chaplin in Chaplin. He is currently starring as Adam in Beetlejuice on Broadway, a role he originated at the Winter Garden Theatre, and has been seen in Broadway productions of Avenue Q, Honeymoon in Vegas, and Noises Off!. Seattle audiences will remember McClure as Nick Bottom in the national tour of Something Rotten!, a role that he also played on Broadway.

As he gets lost in his new persona and grows closer to his kids, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.
