Facetime Interview: John Behlmann: "Tootsie: The Musical"
Live from the Marquis Theatre, where the 11-time Tony nominated Musical Tootsie plays, "Call Me Adam" chats with actor John Behlmann who originates the role of "Max Van Horn," the only new character created for the Broadway show.
This interview was filmed two days before the 2019 Tony Awards took place. Since filming, Tootsie won the Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical (by Robert Horn) & Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Santino Fontana).
"Call Me Adam's" Video Interview with John Behlmann:
Tootsie 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.
Tootsie plays at the Marquis Theatre (210 West 46th Street). Click here for tickets!
