BWW Review: Funny But Flawed TOOTSIE Musical Adaptation Sashays Into OC's Segerstrom  Photo BWW Review: Funny But Flawed TOOTSIE Musical Adaptation Sashays Into OC's Segerstrom Center
by Michael Quintos - Jun 8, 2022

What did our critic think of Tootsie in Costa Mesa? Despite a still problematic central premise, the non-equity national tour of the stage adaptation of TOOTSIE---now playing at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through June 12, 2022---is, for the most part, a funny but flawed musical sprinkled with lots of funny lines, rapid-fire humor, and amusing shenanigans.

Tootsie is a new musical based on the 1982 film starring Dustin Hoffman. The story follows Michael Dorsey ('Is he an actor? Yes, of course, he is. Is he successful? Yes, of course, he's not') and the opening number immediately makes his rotten reputation evident and known.

The musical Tootsie, now playing at the National Theater in Washington, DC, has exceptionally good intentions and flashes of show-biz brio but it tries to do too many disparate things at once. Of course, the cultural zeitgeist of the brilliant film is pervasive in the ‚Äúmind‚Äôs eye‚ÄĚ but that should ideally be of little concern with a musical that veers into making differing choices appropriate for the stage.
