I’m such a fan of the film, but I was very disappointed with the musical. Although some changes were reasonable, there were too many changes that made no sense at all. They should change the title and start over.

After 2 years of pandemic sheltering we ventured out to the Fabulous Fox Theatre in downtown Atlanta for the Friday night performance of "Tootsie". Our hopes were soon dashed as the curtain opened and the show fizzled its way through the opening number. It got worse as the night went on! So bad, we left in the middle of the first act.... couldn't take the agony!! These people should be ashamed of themselves. Boo!

There were some funny zingers, and some talented actors-but Michael/Dorothy fell flat, the story was all Over the place, hard to follow, and the misogyny, transphobia and sexism was literally voiced in the lines of the show. The music was ok but super repetitive, As a long time Broadway show enthusiast, both in New York and locally in Denver, it’s the first time I have walked out at intermission, this show should have ended when the pandemic started.

1.0 star rating Nancy Williams from San Jose, California


Very disappointed! The writing was very entertaining but the songs were so boring! The actor portraying Tootsie was 1 star! At first it was funny but as time went on, it got worse! We never walk out. We think it is disrespectful. Never say never because we left with several others during intermission.

So disappointed in the performance at the Kravis Center in Palm Beach. First, the sound system continues to get worse with each production this year? Tootsie was so miscast. We appreciate the individual talented actors but in a million years there would be no chemistry between Dorothy and Juliet. Truly feel sorry for those involved in this show

1.0 star rating Mike from West Palm Beach, Florida


Let’s skip to the 2nd Act due to my lack of interest in the first…a little boring for me.. Choreography and Music were sadly forgettable except for the rhythm and blues number performed by Julie.. However I give 3 stars to the orchestra in the pit which outshined the performances.Overacted at times. 0 chemistry between the 2 principal actors. In fairness there were a few funny moments and it’s not entirely the actors faults that they had to cope with the hand dealt to them.

1.0 star rating Caroline from Sarasota, Florida


Never leaving a show at intermission; I could not believe that such a well-known theater in which we have never seen a bad show there had such a deplorable cast; the stage presence was mediocre at best; the singing and plot absolutely boring. I felt that they should have paid us to watch the production. Thus definitely was a dud on Van Wezel.
