The musical version of Tootsie is the rare musical leap that maintains the spirit of the original film. That's almost definitely helped along by the campy, over-the-top nature of the Dustin Hoffman source material, something that has no trouble translating to a Broadway stage.

What we're saying is, you should go see Tootsie when it comes to the Dr. Phillips Center this week. The show runs for just six days in Orlando, starting on November 2.  Nightly shows run at 8 p.m. with matinees on the weekend. Sunday's shows are a bit earlier than the rest. Tickets start at $44. More information is available at the venue's website.

Tootsie is just one piece of a push toward normalcy at the theater. Expect runs of a Temptations jukebox musical, a Jesus Christ Superstar staging and the return of marijuana's favorite musical, Cats.
