One of the most unique musicals ever created, the original production of DAMES AT SEA pulled off the feat of creating a magnificent musical extravaganza experience with a tight, multi-talented cast of six. DAMES AT SEAopened Off-Broadway at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre on December 20, 1968, and became an immediate smash hit and quickly transferred to the Theater de Lys on April 22, 1969, were it went on to run for 575 performances. The production starred a young ingénue named Bernadette Peters as Ruby, launching the career of one of Broadway's greatest stars. DAMES AT SEA successfully crossed the Atlantic twice to play the West End's Duchess Theatre in 1969 and again in 1989 to play the West End's Haymarket Theatre.



Directed and choreographed by the three-time Tony Award-nominated choreographer Randy Skinner, DAMES AT SEA is a tap-happy, navy-crazy celebration of the golden era of movie musicals with a heart as big as the ocean! Ruby steps off a bus from Utah and into her first Broadway show, but hours before the opening night curtain is to rise, the cast learns their theater is being demolished. Ruby and the cast, with the help of some adoring sailors, set a plan in motion to perform the show on a naval battleship. Featuring rollicking tap dancing, love at first sight, joyful music and a boatload of laughs, this glittering musical extravaganza has everything you need to sweep your glooms away.
