In honor of National Dessert Day, Tootsie has partnered with Schmackary’s Cookies (362 W 45th Street) to launch “Dorothy’s Cookie Dough Delight” – a sugar cookie with semi-sweet chocolate chips and cookie dough frosting.
The cast of Tootsie selected the cookie after a delicious taste test backstage at the Marquis Theatre.
“Dorothy’s Cookie Dough Delight” is now for a limited time.
Tootsie tells the story of a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime – as the star of a new Broadway musical.
The Broadway company is led by Tony Award winner Santino Fontana as Michael Dorsey, Tony Award nominee Lilli Cooper as Julie Nichols, Tony Award nominee Sarah Stiles as Sandy Lester, John Behlmann as Max Van Horn, Tony Award nominee Andy Grotelueschen as Jeff Slater, Julie Halston as Rita Marshall, Tony Award winner Michael McGrath as Stan Fields, and Tony Award nominee Reg Rogers as Ron Carlisle.
Tootsie opened on Broadway on April 23, 2019. Featuring an original score by Tony Award winner David Yazbeck (The Band’s Visit, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), a book by Tony Award winner Robert Horn (13; Dame Edna, Back with a Vengeance), choreography by Tony Award nominee Denis Jones (Holiday Inn, Honeymoon in Vegas), music direction by Andrea Grody (The Band’s Visit), and directed by nine-time Tony Award nominee and Olivier Award winner Scott Ellis (She Loves Me, On the Twentieth Century), Tootsie plays at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre (210 W 46th St).
