Providence is in for some laughs this weekend as Tootsie takes the stage at Providence Performing Arts Center.

This Halloween weekend may be full of scares and screams, but if you are looking for a great laugh, you should grab some tickets to see this show, whose Dustin Hoffman film version you might recall.

The show's official website describes it this way:

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theatre 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.

We spoke with Payton Riley who plays Sandy Lester, one of the main characters in the show. We are in for a treat if the show has the energy she does.

Check out our chat.

She is too cute and I couldn't help but get all excited about the show after hearing her tell us what it's about. I don't know about you but I might take a break from the spooks and get my laugh on this weekend.

My favorite part of this interview was Payton telling us that backstage is a wall of tags featuring every show that has come through PPAC. That's a lot of shows.

If you are like me and want to get a laugh and be very well entertained this weekend you should grab some tickets to see Tootsie at PPAC.
