Williamstown Theatre Festival presents the U.S. premiere of Ten Cents a Dance, the new Rodgers and Hart musical crafted by Tony Award-winning director John Doyle, which stars Tony Award winner Donna McKechnie and Tony nominee Malcolm Gets. The production began performances on Aug. 11, and will continue through Aug. 28.
Here's how WTF bills the premiere: "Crooner Johnny wistfully recalls his lifelong love affair of chorus girl Miss Jones, who is embodied by five women, each portraying a different stage of her life. As Johnny and Miss Jones take 'Manhattan' under a 'Blue Moon' while 'Falling in Love with Love,' you can't help but think 'Isn't it Romantic?' — even if sometimes 'The Lady is a Tramp.' These and so many other unforgettable songs — filled with infatuation, longing, and enchantment — will sparkle like a glass of champagne on a sexy summer evening. 'All you need is a ticket, come on big boy, ten cents a dance.'"
