Originally produced in London in 1984, the play moved to Broadway in 1987 and was later released in 1991 as a motion picture starring Liza Minnelli. STEPPING OUT is set in a church hall, catalogues the complicated lives of seven women, one man, their teacher and pianist at a weekly tap-dancing class. The stakes are raised when the Mavis Turner Tappers are asked to take part in a charity gala, so somehow they have to raise their game to do themselves justice in their first public performance.
