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 Criticsâ€™ 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).
