The Broadway stars of Contact Karen Ziemba and Boyd Gaines embrace at March 30 opening night party for the "dance-play," which recently transfered from Lincoln Center's Mitzi Newhouse Theater to the Center's Broadway house, the Vivian Beaumont. Contact is divided into three parts. In the first story, "Swinging," three 18th-century French figures carry out a romantic intrigue to jazz violinist Stephane Grappeli's rendition of "My Heart Stood Still." Story two, "Did You Move?," stars Karen Ziemba as an unhappy Queens woman trapped in a suffocating marriage to a laconic brute. With few options open to her, she finds release in romantic fantasies backed by the music of Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Bizet and Puccini. The final piece, "Contact," follows a suicidal advertising executive (Gaines) who, stumbling into an after-hours swing-dancing club, encounters a mysterious, beautiful woman in a yellow dress (Deborah Yates). Finding in the woman a reason to keep on living, he struggles to meet her, but is constantly thwarted by rivals more skilled on the dance floor.
