“I can’t think of a better way to kick-off the Hancock Whitney Broadway in New Orleans 2021-2022 season than with a comedy musical like TOOTSIE,” said Hancock Whitney Senior Vice President Liz Hefler. “We’ve waited a long time to welcome live theater back to New Orleans and can’t wait to see whatTOOTSIE and the rest season has to offer!”

 

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater 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 David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty 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!”
