Information

In desperation, the hopelessly unsuccessful actor Michael Dorsey goes to an audition for the role of the wet nurse in a new musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, dressed as a woman. But when he actually gets the part as "Dorothy Michaels", the problems are just beginning. Actually, his neurotic girlfriend Sandy had speculated on the role, director Ron is a macho man with horrible staging ideas, reality star Max likes more mature women, and colleague Julie is extremely attractive to Michael (and Dorothy?). Can Michael only become a better man as a woman?

Sydney Pollack's gender-swapping comedy Tootsie gave Dustin Hoffman a starring role and his biggest audience success in 1982. In 2019, the musical adaptation by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and Robert Horn (13: the Musical) was the big hit on Broadway and is now coming to Austria for the first time.
