25 Days of Tonys: Tootsie\s Santino Fontana - Playbill.com
Here are our predictions for who will win at the Tony Awards
Santino Fontana spends eight shows a week switching back and forth between his characters Michael Dorsey and Dorothy Michaels in Broadways Tootsie.

Whats great is, I love that he is myopic, he told Playbill on opening night. He only sees himself at first. He sings about that at the end of the show. … Dorothy is the great defender of everybody. Shes what we all want to be. She is carefree and lovely and funny and kind and warm.

What is a Tonys party without some celebratory toasting to the Great White Way? Well we think you should take it a step further this year with our Tony Awards Drinking Game! Play along with our rules below on the big night and we guarantee that youll have WAY more fun than your friends who dont. Bottoms up!*

Raise a Glass with BroadwayWorlds 2019 Tony Awards Drinking Game!

Fontana may be nominated for a Tony Award (and won a Drama Desk Award) for the role, but he started out putting on theatre in his garage. It was a Thanksgiving play in my garage where I played a turkey, he says in the video above. I had a death scene.

* Drink at your own risk… BroadwayWorld will not be held responsible for any alcohol induced singing, dancing, dressing up, dressing down or other Tony related incidents.

Here, he shares his favorite past Tony Awards performance, his choice for a future Tony Awards host, and his quote to live by.

Nine additional tracks will be released June 7 with three subsequent drops—each tied to pairs or groups of characters in the mythology-inspired musical—will follow June 28, July 12, and July 26.
