The new comedy musical Tootsie, adapted from the 1982 film, began previews on Broadway March 29, following an acclaimed out-of-town tryout in Chicago last fall. Variety called Tony-winner David Yazbek's score "strikingly over-the-top: You know something's right when the music itself feels witty." Meanwhile, The Chicago Tribune commented, "The sound has a movie-score quality. many of his tempos are arrestingly up - so much so.that they keep amping the pleasures of the piece."

His 2018 Tony award give Mr. Yazbek considerable current stature as a composer. Perhaps that helped land the 19-person orchestra that gives this show a very classical Broadway musical sound. He takes advantage by opening with a very traditional overture. In addition to Fontana and a fine cast, there are some extras and a full ensemble chorus. All the lyrics to the songs as well as the creation story for the musical are provided in the booklet. Since the story was “updated”, it would have been useful to have a synopsis. Still, this good enough to merit owning, or at least streaming to satisfy your curiosity.
Yazbek's hilarious lyrics and muscular rhythms keep this musical comedy clipping along a great pace. Very funny show and definitely for grown-ups. Enjoy!
