What is Tootsie about?
When obsessive perfectionist Michael is fired from a Broadway gig due to his proclivities, he decides that change is necessary - even if it means his gender. Taking to drag to pass himself off as the glamorous 'Dorothy', he soon lands a new job. But watch out Broadway, makeup and clothes are no match for this ego!
Tootsie is now playing at the Marquis Theater.
