Broadway’s Mrs. Doubtfire will unplug the vacuum cleaner and hang up the apron earlier than expected: The musical, which has been posting middling box office numbers during the industry’s crowded spring season, will end its run at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on May 29, producers announced.“Even though New York City is getting stronger every day and ticket sales are slowly improving,” said producer Kevin McCollum, “theatre-going tourists and, especially for our show, family audiences have not returned as soon as we anticipated.

Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to run the show without those sales, especially when capitalizing with Broadway economics on three separate occasions.”Mrs.

Doubtfire, which stars the Tony-nominated Rob McClure in the title role (the show’s sole nomination), originally began preview performances on March 9, 2020, just three days before Broadway’s pandemic shutdown.

Performances of the musical resumed on October 21, 2021 and stopped again at the height of the Omicron surge on January 9, 2022.
