Seesaw, according to press notes, is an "intimate, engaging love story and a big, brassy musical comedy rolled into one delightful evening of theatre. Jerry Ryan (Kilty Reidy), a handsome WASPish lawyer from Omaha who has left his wife and fled to New York meets Gittel Mosca (Celina Carvajal), a single, loveable Jewish girl from the Bronx who's studying to be a dancer. This unlikely pair meet, fall in love, and part in a bittersweet tale that is full of fun, music and laughter through tears."
