The 80s classic gets musical theatre makeover

Why See Tootsie?

Santino Fontana stars

Now On Sale!

The 1980s hit movie, Tootsie, is gets a musical makeover this fall. Starting with a pre-Broadway engagement in Chicago the brand new musical will be heading to the bright lights of Broadway in the spring of 2019.

Tony Nominee Santino Fontana (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Cinderella, Frozen) is set to star as Michael Dorsey/Dorothy Michaels, with the mind behind 2018's Tony-winning smash The Band's Visit, David Yazbek in charge of the score.

A financial and critical success when it opened back in '82, Tootsie went on to recieve ten Academy-Award nominations, with the top acting prize heading to Jessica Lange.

What is Tootsie about?

When Michael Dorsey, an actor whose obsessive need for perfection lands him without a job once more, turns to drag to get a gig, little could he predict the path that his alter-ego 'Dorothy Michaels' will tread in her high heels, changing his life forever.

Love, success, personality and more collide as Dorsey discovers more about himself than he ever expected!

Book of Mormon

The perfect Broadway musical. Behold The Book of Mormon. An exhilarating Broadway musical at once revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene, uncompromising in production standards and unafraid of just about anything.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
