Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie!

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater 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. Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band’s VisitDirty 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). “In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll,” raves Rolling Stone. “Tootsie is it!”

James Gregory
Jun 5 @ 7:30 pm
Peace Concert Hall

gregory

For decades, veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It’s storytelling at its best, and on June 5, he brings his rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch to the Peace Center.

The Atlanta native’s success as a comedian is the direct result of the values he grew up with. And now, twenty-something years later, it is this unique brand of humor that packs the crowds into sold-out theaters and comedy clubs and has earned him a weekly presence on syndicated radio shows that are broadcast to people in over 220 cities nationwide. The absence of vulgarity sets him apart, and his stories are carefully crafted art. As he would say, “It’s real, it’s funny, and the audience loves it.”

Throughout his career, James has been featured in publications such as Atlanta MagazineCountry America, and Southern Living and has appeared in concert with Kenny Chesney, Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs, and more!

Gregory invites you to turn the clock back to a time when life was simpler – before the death of common sense and the introduction of cell phones.

This performance will feature special guest Dan Mengini! Dan’s truthful and brilliant comedy has been featured on Pure Flix Comedy All-Stars, USA Network’s Necessary Roughness, and more.
