Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie! This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony-winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg). “In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll,” raves Rolling Stone. “Tootsie is it!”
Recommended for ages 10 and up.

Parking and traffic alert for weekend performances
The weekend of June 23-25 will be especially lively downtown with Taylor Swift’s sold-out concerts at U.S. Bank Stadium on June 23 and 24 and Twin Cities Pride Festival events throughout the weekend. Please plan accordingly for traffic congestion, road closures and pedestrian presence. Details are available here from the City of Minneapolis.
Important: portions of Hennepin Avenue will be closed Sunday, June 25 for the 2023 Twin Cities LGBTQ+ Pride March, which kicks off at 11 a.m. A map for the march can be found here. Please note: the Hennepin at 10th ramp will be inaccessible, and we anticipate parking in the LaSalle Plaza ramp to be challenging. Ticketholders for the Sunday matinee are encouraged to enter the theatre from 9th Street as heavy foot traffic is expected in front of the Orpheum.
