“In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll - 'TOOTSIE' is it! (Rolling Stone)

Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone).

Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter).

Call it "TOOTSIE!"

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. 

Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony-winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg)

Based on the 1982 smash comedy hit, "TOOTSIE THE MUSICAL" was nominated for 10 Tony® awards and while capturing the hearts of audiences all over the country. 

This hysterically funny show is sure to make you laugh out loud while falling in love with the incredibly talented cast of characters.  

Come laugh your heart out and see firsthand why this 1982 smash hit has made a come back as a Broadway success!
