Tootsie is the start for queer actor’s theatrical path RICH LOPEZ | Staff email@example.com At just 20 years old, Arianna Schrage is embarking on the biggest break of her young theater career.
The queer actor took a break from her college studies in Ohio to join the cast of Tootsie, which is currently running at the Winspear through Sunday, April 30, as part of Broadway Dallas’ season.
She will continue her ensemble and understudy roles in Fort Worth when the show moves to Bass Hall May 9-14. But even though she is on her first national tour, her plan is to get right back into the groove with school. “It’s been such a thrilling gap year, to be immersed into this professional opportunity, but yeah, the plan is to go back to school after the tour,” Schrage said by phone.
What Tootsie is doing for her now is making everything clear. Schrage says she definitely wants her degree, and she has so much more to learn.
