David Yabeck posted a photo of the Tootsie marquee last night. Interesting new artwork. I'm sort of on the fence about it. No changes in art on the website, however.
Why does any marketing team think that is enticing artwork?
Is that supposed to be a lipstick smear? It looks like a sperm.

Almost looks like a menstrual joke.
To me, it's reminiscent of the original movie poster.
That red thing is unidentifiable as anything but sperm. If they were going for a lipstick reference, why not the kiss print? The kiss would be generic, but this "smear" isn't complete enough to suggest that reference. I kinda thought maybe it was a wig at first, but did Santino wear a long, flowing, Wendy's-red wig? As a designer myself, I simply don't understand what logo/branding design has come to on Broadway recently.I'm kinda surprised they don't play into the masculine/feminine duality, that would be a much better concept for a design and give a much better inkling of the show's plot.
It looks like a meteor. If you don't know the plot of Tootsie, you'd think it's about the apocalypse.
it looks like a wig brandishing a handgun
It doesn't look "fun" and that's what the show should be selling. It looks uninspired.
Worst Broadway logo in a long time (and that's saying something). I can only hope it makes more sense when we see a full windowcard or playbill.

Dollypop said: "The picture has to be photoshopped. THE ILLUSIONISTS is currently at the Marquis."They have an electronic marquee and it basically plays a slideshow of the Illusionists, Celebrity Autobiography, and Tootsie.
That must be a temporary art placeholder or something. The website still has the old keyart.
I was literally just posting CARRIE!
I would focus something on a look like this! Maybe just have their faces large on each end of the poster, where it only shows half their faces each. More like a before and after, but teasing enough just to be curious to know what this is about. I think it would attract. If I knew how to do a Photoshop I would do one!
That logo is about as generic as the show.
