Santino Fontana stars in this movie makeover!
A hit with the critics!
The 1980s hit movie gets a musical makeover this fall. Starting with a pre-Broadway engagement in Chicago the brand new musical will be heading to the bright lights of Broadway in the spring of 2019.
Tony Nominee Santino Fontana (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Cinderella, Frozen) is set to star as Michael Dorsey/Dorothy Michaels, with the mind behind 2018's Tony-winning smash The Band's Visit, David Yazbek in charge of the score.
A financial and critical success when it opened back in '82, Tootsie went on to recieve ten Academy-Award nominations, with the top acting prize heading to Jessica Lange.
What is Tootsie about?
When Michael Dorsey, an actor whose obsessive need for perfection lands him without a job once more, turns to drag to get a gig, little could he predict the path that his alter-ego 'Dorothy Michaels' will tread in her high heels, changing his life forever!
