Tootsie - 2019 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Tony nominee Santino Fontana delivers "one of the best musical performances ever seen on a musical stage" (Rolling Stone) in the show critics are calling "Broadway's funniest new musical!" (New York Post). This New York Times Critic's Pick tells the story of Michael Dorsey, an out-of-work actor willing to do anything for a job -- even if it means playing way against type. When he disguises himself as an outspoken actress named Dorothy Michaels, he defies all odds to become a Broadway sensation. But as audiences fall for Dorothy and Michael starts to fall for the woman of his dreams, he's learning that the hardest part of show business isn't getting to the top... it's keeping up the act.

Winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical, Tootsie has received 11 Tony Award nominations including Best Score (David Yazbek), Best Book (Robert Horn), Best Choreography (Denis Jones), Best Direction (Scott Ellis) and Best Musical. It's "a fresh, funny, madly entertaining riot" (The Hollywood Reporter) loaded with "bushels of exceptional talent" (New York Magazine). Don't miss "the winner Broadway has been waiting for!" (The Washington Post).

Featured Reviews For Tootsie


Theater Review: Can Tootsie Work When It’s Not 1982? - Vulture
Fontana is pouring plenty of vigor and vocal vibrance into his role, but the truth is that Michael/Dorothy's charm falls pretty flat pretty fast. I found myself thinking of Andy Karl's similarly charismatic-and-self-absorbed performance as Phil Connors in Groundhog Day: Yes, the hero's a jerk. Yes, we know he's going to learn his lesson. But do we really want to dedicate our time to his lengthy, self-centered learning process - especially, in Tootsie, when the hero gets to spend so much of that process enjoying the spotlight? Despite its razzle-dazzle, Tootsie feels empty at the center. It's all but impossible to sympathize with the lead, and it's hard to be that interested in the woman he falls for.

‘Tootsie’ Broadway Review: Santino Fontana Can’t Fill Dustin Hoffman’s Heels in New Musical - The Wrap
The good news is that book writer Robert Horn has not pulled a "Pretty Woman" and simply transcribed a screenplay, in this case, the Oscar-nominated 1982 script by Larry Gelbart, Murray Schisgal and many uncredited writers. Equally good, Horn supplies a few one-liners that are every bit as funny as the movie's zingers.
