  • SYNOPSIS

    2019 Tony Award® winner Santino Fontana delivers "one of the best  performances ever seen on a musical stage" (Rolling Stone) in the show critics are calling "the most uproariously funny new musical comedy to hit Broadway in years!" (The Hollywood Reporter). This New York Times Critic's Pick tells the story of Michael Dorsey, an out-of-work actor willing to do anything for a job -- even if it means playing way against type. When he disguises himself as an outspoken actress named Dorothy Michaels, he defies all odds to become a Broadway sensation. But as audiences fall for Dorothy and Michael starts to fall for the woman of his dreams, he's learning that the hardest part of show business isn't getting to the top... it's keeping up the act.
