Mrs. Doubtfire is Taking Over New Orleans!

Get ready to roll the dice and grab your giggles, New Orleans! Mrs. Doubtfire is hitting the Saenger Theatre, and it’s bringing a lottery with it, courtesy of Broadway in New Orleans presented by Entergy and Lucky Seat.

From May 14th to May 19th, 2024, the Saenger Theatre will be bursting with the hilarious antics of everyone’s favorite Scottish nanny. Rob McClure, reprising his Tony-nominated Broadway performance, will be joined by his real-life wife, Maggie Lakis, in this internationally acclaimed hit musical that critics call “wonderful, heart-warming, and laugh-out-loud funny” (Manchester Evening News) and “a feel-good, family-friendly comedy that delivers” (The Hollywood Reporter).

Now, you have the chance to snag tickets for just $39! The ticket lottery kicks off on May 3rd at noon and closes on May 10th at 9:30 a.m. Then, it’s Lucky Seat’s time to shine. Winners will be notified via email starting at 10 a.m. on May 10th, and they have until 1 p.m. to claim their tickets. Participants must have a Lucky Seat account to participate in the lottery. Entrants may create an account on to enter. 

Students may also receive a special deal! Flash your college ID at the Saenger Theatre box office two hours before showtime, and you could snag Rush Tickets for just $30. This price will be valid for evening performances only with a two-ticket limit per student ID. That’s surely a steal for an evening of top-notch entertainment! 

This isn’t just any musical— it’s a feel-good extravaganza that’s all about love, family, and second chances. And with showtimes from May 14th to May 19th, there’s plenty of opportunities to catch the magic. So, whether you’re feeling lucky or just in need of a good laugh, don’t miss out on Mrs. Doubtfire at the Saenger Theatre. It’s the comedy we all need right now, reminding us that no matter what life throws our way, love always wins in the end. See you there!
