Ashley Alexandra in the National Tour of "Tootsie" at Proctors 4/11-4/16


Tootsie, the musical comedy based on the 1982 film of the same name, is visiting Proctors in Schenectady now through Sunday. This Tony-Award winning show shines a light on society's treatment of women and the trouble with show business.

The show tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime.

This morning we we meet Ashley Alexandra who plays Julie Nichols – an actor who Michael – as Dorothy – falls for.
