The Clinton Community College Alumni Association will host a bus trip to see the play TOOTSIE on Saturday, September 29, 2018. Tickets are limited.
Originally starring Dustin Hoffman in the lead role, TOOTSIE tells the story of struggling actor Michael Dorsey who's got a bad reputation and decides to take somewhat drastic action in order to change his fate. Featuring Clinton’s own Andy Grotelueschen, this play will head to New York’s Broadway in Spring of 2019.
TOOTSIE will star Tony Award® nominee Santino Fontana as struggling actor Michael Dorsey. Santino is well known to television audiences for his role as Greg on “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” His many Broadway credits include his Tony®-nominated performance in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Billy Elliot, Sunday in the Park with George, and Brighton Beach Memoirs.
TOOTSIE features an original score by Tony Award® nominee David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), a book by Robert Horn (13; Dame Edna, Back with a Vengeance), choreography by Tony Award® nominee Denis Jones (Holiday Inn, Honeymoon in Vegas), and musical direction by Andrea Grody. TOOTSIE will be directed by eight-time Tony Award® nominee and Olivier Award winner Scott Ellis (She Loves Me, On the Twentieth Century).
The Tony Award®-winning design team for TOOTSIE includes scenic designer David Rockwell, costume designer William Ivey Long, lighting design by Donald Holder, and sound design by Brian Ronan. Based on the story by Don McGuire and Larry Gelbart and the Columbia Pictures Motion Picture.
