David Yazbek and Robert Horn's Broadway musical adaptation of the Oscar-winning film Tootsie is one of the most highly-anticipated shows of 2019, and it can't arrive soon enough. Tony Award nominee and Broadway chameleon Santino Fontana leads the company as Michael Dorsey/Dorothy Michaels, the consistently out-of-work actor who finds stardom creating a secret female persona. Previews for the new musical comedy begin March 29 at Broadway's Marquis Theatre.
