On the Town marks Bergasse's Broadway debut as a choreographer. And what an introduction it is. He walked away from his first Broadway opening with New York Magazine calling his work a "glorious sight" and Ben Brantley of the New York Times reporting that On the Town featured "the dreamiest dream ballets I've seen in years."
"I dreamt of doing a dream ballet from an MGM musical," Bergasse said. "The thing is that I had seen the movie 'On the Town,' but never seen a stage production. I had no idea how much they had changed for the movie. The movie was a very different animal. I didn't realize the amount of dance that was actually in the show that was not in the movie."
