“Tootsie”

September 11, 2018

"Tootsie"

The world premiere comedy musical “Tootsie” tells the story of a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until an audacious, desperate stunt lands him the role of a lifetime.

“Tootsie” will star Tony Award-nominee Santino Fontana as struggling actor Michael Dorsey. Santino is well known to TV and film audiences for his role as Greg on “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and for providing the voice to the villainous Prince Hans in the blockbuster animated film “Frozen.” His many Broadway credits include his Tony-nominated performance in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella,” “Billy Elliot,” “Sunday in the Park with George,” and “Brighton Beach Memoirs.”

“Tootsie” features an original score by Tony Award-nominee David Yazbek (“The Band’s Visit,” “The Full Monty,” “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”), a book by Robert Horn (“13,” “Dame Edna,” “Back with a Vengeance”), choreography by Tony Award-nominee Denis Jones (“Holiday Inn,” “Honeymoon in Vegas”), and musical direction by Andrea Grody (“The Band’s Visit”). “Tootsie” will be directed by seven-time Tony Award-nominee and Olivier Award-winner Scott Ellis (“She Loves Me,” “On the Twentieth Century”).
