Special Features   EXCLUSIVE: Check Out the Hilarious Credits on Dorothy Michaels' Fake Résumé From Tootsie
 
From North Pacific to Solid Golda: The Golda Meir Story, see what other faux shows Michaels starred in before auditioning for Tootsie’s show-within-the-show.

When actor Michael Dorsey becomes too difficult to book a job, he disguises himself as a woman—renamed Dorothy Michaels—and sets out on auditions without any reputation preceding her. Such is the plot of Broadway’s new musical comedy Tootsie, based on the eponymous film starring Dustin Hoffman.

In the movie version, Dorothy is trying to get cast on a new soap opera. For the musical adaptation, the lead creative team—director Scott Ellis, writer Robert Horn, and composer-lyricist David Yazbek—have decided to go meta and Dorothy is trying to get cast in a new Broadway musical version of Rome & Juliet, titled Juliet’s Curse. Of course, she has to hand in her headshot and résumé.

And Dorothy Michaels apparently starred in quite a few productions. Check out her faux headshot and hilarious résumé below—exclusively on Playbill.
