TOOTSIE WAS HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING PERFORMANCE

Poor performance. No beauty, no talent, no performance, no style, no mastery. Such performance is disrespectful to audience

1.0 star rating Anonymous from Hartford, Connecticut

AWFUL ACROSS THE BOARD!

The acting, singing, dancing, blocking, casting, directing, and scenery were substandard. Barely at the high school level. The lead was talentless...as a male and female. While I respect the effort to be socially progressive, the effort fell flat! One of the worst plays I've seen! Left at intermission. A total bomb!

SPEND YOUR MONEY & TIME ON A NICE LUNCH OR DINNER INSTEAD

We left at intermission. Not impressed with the cast or substance of the musical.

COMMUNITY COLLEGE THEATER IS BETTER THAN THIS. TERRIBLE!

I don't know where to begin. This eclectic collection of actors provided a community college performance. The cast or should I say mis-cast had zero synergy. It actually reminded me of a high school play where you have a small pool of people to choose from and 3/4 of the actors are out of place. Juliet was so miscast I felt sorry for her. The direction was HORRIBLE. The choreography was as bad as I've ever seen. Dancers weren't in sync, spacing was terrible, blocking was just as bad. Has Drew Becker ever acted or sang on stage before? The worst actor was Payton Reilly. She screeched her way to the end. I didn't understand 1/2 of what she said. I'm grateful my tickets were free. The best part of the show was the Fabulous Fox Theater. What a gorgeous building.

TOOTSIE

Very disappointed in the show. Considered leaving after first act, but stayed, thinking it might get better. It didn’t.

THIS IS A NATIONAL BROADWAY TOURING PRODUCTION

By community theater standards this show sucks. The singing by most of the cast was bad and the lead actor was terrible. Acting was awkward and the characters’ timing was off. Nothing came across as believable, funny or charming. By Broadway theater standards the show was a disaster; even the scenery and staging was average at best and trite most often. Looking at the cast credits I noticed that many identified cruise line shows in their history. Perhaps the ship they were on ran aground in Milwaukee so they just continue on at the Uhlein Hall. That would be the only thing about this ahow that makes any sense.
