Tootsie

May 19 – 21, 2023
8 p.m.
Starlight Theatre in Swope Park

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 theatre 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 Davie Yazbek (The Band’s VisitDirty 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). “In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll,” raves Rolling Stone. “Tootsie is it!”
