Tootsie - 2018 - Chicago

$30-$125

It’s the story of a talented, but difficult-to-work-with actor who will do anything to land the role of a lifetime—including adopting a new persona as Dorothy Michaels.



Starring Tony® nominee Santino Fontana (Cinderella, the film Frozen), this new production features a score by Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, The Full Monty), a book by Robert Horn (13, Dame Edna Back with a Vengeance), choreography by Tony nominee Denis Jones (Holiday Inn, Honeymoon in Vegas), and direction by eight-time Tony nominee and Olivier Award winner Scott Ellis (She Loves Me, On The Twentieth Century).



TOOTSIE will play a pre-Broadway engagement at the Cadillac Palace Theatre from September 11- October 14. TOOTSIE will go to Broadway in Spring 2019.

Tony Award nominee, Sarah Stiles (Tootsie, Hand to God) recently released her debut EP, You Can Ukulele With Me, via Broadway Records.

Da han vokste opp i London-forstaden Sutton, sminket han seg, brukte neglelakk og farget håret i en tid få våget å skille seg ut og ble sjikanert av samfunnet. I en periode var han gutteprostituert og var i over 30 år aktmodell. I årene 1940-81 bodde han på hybel i London, deretter og livet ut i New York. Morten Rudå spiller rollen som Quentin Crisp.
