One of the biggest hits of the Broadway season is heading out on the road. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Tootsie, will begin a national tour in the fall of 2020. It will all kick off at Shea's Buffalo Theatre in Buffalo, NY.
Producers Scott Sanders and Carol Fineman said,
We are thrilled that audiences and critics alike have fallen in love with Tootsie -- from our world premiere engagement in Chicago to Broadway – and we are very excited to share the laughs with audiences across the country and globe.
Not only is Tootsie nominated for 11 Tonys, but also took home the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical earlier this month. It has also been nominated for 12 Drama Desk Awards.
In addition to a national tour, Tootsie is also going international with openings confirmed for London, Australia, and Japan.
