BUFFALO, NY – Buffalo was fortunate enough to see “Tootsie” Wednesday night at Shea’s Performing Arts Center.
“Tootsie” is the story of an actor who goes to great lengths to get his next break.
2 Lauren Hall of On Your Side got a chance to speak to some of the cast members, and it turns out there’s a connection between western New York and the show.
Originally from Hamburg and a graduate of SUNY Fredonia, Dominique Kempf is in the production, in the role of “Suzie”. She graduated from Frontier Central High School.
Being the West New Yorker on the trip here to Buffalo, of course she had to be the cast tour guide.
“Everyone went to Gabriel’s Gate for the wings,” she said. “Yesterday everyone did Niagara Falls, Maid of the Mist, they really loved it.
“I can give them an insider scoop, which is fun because I can share a part of me. We still have a bit to do. I’m still going to share it with them at a few cool places in Buffalo.”
Dominique said it’s cool that at every stop on the tour there is someone in the cast from this region, so it’s fun to share your hometown experience with everyone.
“Tootsie” runs through Saturday at Shea’s, so if you want to see it then you better make plans soon.
