ABOUT TOOTSIE – A NEW MUSICAL COMEDY
Following its Broadway debut in 2019, new musical Tootsie will reportedly open in London’s West End in 2020.
The musical stage adaptation of the hit 1980’s film has received a 21st century makeover with a score by David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, The Full Monty) and book by Robert Horn (13).
Originally starring Dustin Hoffman as a talented but volatile, out of work actor who assumes a female alter ego to land a job on a daytime soap, the film was a financial and critical success winning three Golden Globes and nominated for ten Academy Awards.
Tootsie – A New Comedy Musical will be directed by Scott Ellis.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Talented but with an impossible reputation, out of work actor Michael Dorsey disguises himself as a woman to audition for a day-time soap.
As Dorothy Michaels, Dorsey wins the role with his ‘independent woman’ attitude and becomes a surprise hit in the rating but Dorsey/Dorothy soon find themselves in a bit of bother with a tricky and confusing love triangle…
