Washington Lobbyist

As 2021 comes to a close, it is with great joy and excitement to announce the theater season in Washington DC is back. As you might know, the pandemic has pushed the brakes on any audience event, but The National Theatre, Washington, D.C., has taken significant steps to keep us safe and welcomes the theater arts back to our area. One of the shows making a debut in Washington, DC is the Broadway production of Tootsie, a fun and hilarious adaptation of the 1982 film starring Dustin Hoffman.

Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony-winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg).

This production of Tootsie at The National Theater plays this week only from December 7 through December 12. However, there are many ticket options. Would you please go to thenationaldc.com for more information?

All ticketholders age 12 and up will be required to provide ONE of the following:
