‘Tootsie’ musical rolls to 2021 at Fox Theatre

The Atlanta debut of “Tootsie” has been rescheduled to 2021.

The hit Broadway musical, based on the 1982 movie, was scheduled to play the Fox Theatre Dec. 1-6. The show will still be part of Broadway in Atlanta’s 2020-2021 season – its 40th anniversary - but will now run Aug. 3-8, 2021. 

“Tootsie” tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a volatile actor who becomes so difficult to work with that he forms a new identity as a woman to land a job. The production features music by David Yazbek (“The Band’s Visit,” “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”) and won a 2018 Tony Award for best book of a musical.
