The Broadway cast of Tootsie, including Tony Award winner Santino Fontana, and Tony nominees Sarah Stiles and Lilli Cooper, are set to appear at the Upper East Side Barnes and Noble September 10 for a CD signing event celebrating the recent release of the show’s original Broadway cast recording.
The 4 PM signing event will include a mini-concert of songs from Tootsie, with appearances by Fontana, Stiles, and Cooper, as well as fellow company members Andy Grotelueschen, John Behlmann, Reg Rogers, and Julie Halston.
Tootsie features a Tony-nominated score by Yazbeck and a Tony-winning book by Robert Horn. The Decca Broadway cast recording was released digitally in June, and arrived on CD August 16.
Directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed Denis Jones, Tootsie tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a struggling actor who lands a job under the female persona of Dorothy Michaels. Based on the 1982 Dustin Hoffman film, Tootsie opened on Broadway April 23 at the Marquis Theatre.
