The musical adaptation of Tootsie, featuring a score by The Band’s Visit Tony winner David Yazbek and book by Robert Horn, officially opens on Broadway April 23 at the Marquis Theatre. Directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Denis Jones, Tootsie arrives in New York following an out-of-town engagement at Chicago’s Cadillac Theatre last fall. Broadway previews began March 29.

The cast also includes Lilli Cooper as Julie Nichols, Sarah Stiles as Sandy Lester, John Behlmann as Max Von Horn, Andy Grotelueschen as Jeff Slater, Julie Halston as Rita Marshall, Michael McGrath as Stan Fields, and Reg Rogers as Ron Carlisle.
