By Linda Armstrong

Lilli Cooper is an amazing talent, and is magnificent in Tootsie as Julie Nichols. Her extraordinary performance garnered her a 2019 Tony nomination. She recently sat down and talked about her role and career. The daughter of Tony Award winner Chuck Cooper, she has made a place for herself on the Broadway stage.

“I’m lucky I get to do what I love. It’s awesome.” Talking about what it’s like to be in a hilarious musical like “Tootsie,” Cooper shared, “You know it’s actually really interesting. The rehearsal process was such a learning experience. It felt like I was in a meeting with comedic geniuses, in like a comedy master class walking into rehearsal every day."
