Winspear Opera House | Dallas, Texas
On Tuesday 25th April 2023, Winspear Opera House will host a live performance of Tootsie, the musical. It's impossible to overemphasize the splendor of a performance like this. You will be laughing so hard you'll need to catch your breath during this excellent show. In addition, you can anticipate the most gorgeous set design and wardrobe this industry has ever witnessed. It goes without saying that a musical's success depends on the quality of its score, and Tootsie has that in spades. You'll need to act fast to reserve one of the available seats, though, because there are only a few to go around. The good news is that you can still get your hands on some right now. Don't delay, just go on ahead and grab the best seat in the house.
Due to Michael Dorsey's combustible personality and obstinacy, he has earned a reputation as a complicated actor and a director's worst nightmare. Michael is turning forty and is desperate after a sequence of failed auditions. As if that wasn't enough to set him off, his best friend and roommate Jeff brings up the aspirational "to-do list" he made to achieve before he turned forty. Michael gets inspired and decides to give the theater one last shot at stardom.
He's going to his next acting role dressed as Dorothy Michaels, an actress. Michael's Dorothy takes off like a jet engine after she is appointed for the lead role in the upcoming Broadway musical "Juliet's Nurse." When Dorothy sings the chorus to "I Won't Let You Down," she instantaneously has the focus of the audience. Michael's perspective shifts substantially after seeing the world through Dorothy's eyes: "Women listen to each other." Michael (in character as Dorothy) quickly develops feelings for Julie, one of his co-stars on the show. Will Michael be able to keep with his biggest acting challenge, or will he be authentic and be himself?
The narrative of this one-of-a-kind show is pretty ridiculous, and that is its appeal. Expect the laugh of your life, but you need to grab your tickets right now as they won't be around for long.
