Mrs. Doubtfire Reviews
"McClure is on stage for nearly all two-and-a-half hours, and he looks like he barely breaks a sweat as he flies through acres of shtick and myriad costume changes”
- The Seattle Times
"Whether Daniel is mending fences with his kids, cavorting with puppets, or, as Mrs. Doubtfire, doling out bawdy wisecracks and spoonfuls of advice in a brogue-ish accent and dowdy duds, McClure brings winning sincerity and his own nimble, multi-voiced comic chops to the effort.”
