Tootsie the Musical

It’s been a while, due to the pandemic, but Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando kicks off its newest season at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts with the musical Tootsie from November 2-7, 2021.

Tootsie is based on the hit 80s movie, and tells the story of a talented but volatile actor whose reputation for being difficult forces him to adopt a new identity as a woman named Dorothy in order to land a job.

The Broadway production began previews on March 29, 2019, and closed on January 5, 2020, having played 293 regular and 25 preview performances. In between, it won several awards, including two Tonys.
