All of this will be live at Fred Kavli Theatre At Bank Of America Performing Arts Center on Thursday 1st June 2023, but you have to be quick because tickets are running out.

Due to Michael Dorsey's concussive personality and belligerence, he has earned a reputation as a daunting actor and a director's worst nightmare. Michael is turning forty and is desperate after a set of failed auditions. As if that was not enough to set him off, his best friend and roommate Jeff brings up the optimistic "to-do list" he made to achieve before he turned forty. Michael gets inspired and decides to give the theater one last shot at stardom.
He's going to his next audition dressed as Dorothy Michaels, an actress. Michael's Dorothy takes off like a cruise missile after she is selected for the lead role in the upcoming Broadway musical "Juliet's Nurse." When Dorothy sings the chorus to "I Won't Let You Down," she instantly has the the crowd's attention. Michael's perspective shifts markedly after seeing the world through Dorothy's eyes: "Women listen to each other." Michael (in character as Dorothy) quickly develops feelings for Julie, one of his co-stars on the show. Will Michael be capable of keeping up with his biggest acting challenge, or will he be genuine and be himself?
The narrative of this one-of-a-kind show is rather ridiculous, and that is its appeal. Expect the laugh of your life, but you need to buy your tickets right now as they won't be around for long.
