Tootsie originally premiered on Broadway in spring 2019 at the Marquis Theatre. The production received two Tony Awards and eleven nominations including Best Musical. It features a score by David Yazbek, a Tony Award-winning book by Robert Horn, direction by Scott Ellis, and choreography by Denis Jones.

Adapted from the Don McGuire and Larry Gelbart story and the Columbia Pictures Motion Picture produced by Punch Productions and starring Dustin Hoffman, Tootsie tells the story of a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime – as the star of a new Broadway musical.
