Why See Tootsie?

Broadway ShowsMusicalsStars on Stage

Santino Fontana stars

The iconic 80s classic gets a makeover in the form of this brand new musical adaptation! With a score from David Yazbek (The Band's Visit) and book by Robert Horn, the story of a diva actor whose terrible behavior sees him take on a larger than life new personality to start fresh, Tootsie and her sequins arrive fresh from a critically successful tryout in Chicago, retaining star Tony Award Nominee and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend alum Santino Fontana in the lead.

A financial and critical success when it opened back in '82, the movie went on to receive ten Academy-Award nominations, with the top acting prize heading to Jessica Lange. Described in turns as 'Not your grandmother's Tootsie' (Director Scott Ellis) and a 'Bouncy musical (that) turns the story into a full-on satire of the narcissistic male ego' (Variety), it looks as if Tootsie is ready to take on the 21st Century with aplomb.

What is Tootsie about?

When obsessive perfectionist Micheal 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!
