"The original production of DAMES AT SEA started off-off-Broadway on the smallest stage imaginable, with a great book and score, and a huge heart." said producer Anna Roberts Ostroff, "We are so proud that the current production, which started at Infinity Theatre Company, went on to wow critics and is thrilling audiences in the Broadway premiere of this beloved musical."
"DAMES AT SEA is a fantastic family-friendly musical, perfect for both Broadway series subscribers and theater lovers across the country looking for a sure-fire entertaining evening," said Steve Schnepp from the Broadway Booking Office. "This critically acclaimed feel-good musical comedy celebrates with joy the tap dancing fun and light hearted humor of the Fred-and-Ginger, Mickey-and-Judy beloved musicals of the '30s!"
DAMES AT SEA stars John Bolton as The Captain/Hennesey, Mara Davi as Joan, Danny Gardner as Lucky, Eloise Kropp as Ruby, Laurence Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita as Mona Kent, and Cary Tedder as Dick. The original 1968 production of Dames at Sea launched the career of the young ingénue playing Ruby, Bernadette Peters. The Dames at Sea company includes Tessa Grady, Kristie Kerwin, Ian Knauer and Kevin Worley.
With a book and lyrics by George Haimsohn and Robin Miller, music by Jim Wise, orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, and music supervision and vocal & dance arrangements by Emmy Award winner Rob Berman, Dames at Sea is directed and choreographed by three time Tony Award nominee Randy Skinner.
DAMES AT SEA is a tap-happy gem of a show that celebrates the golden era of movie musicals with dazzling dances, spectacular songs and delightful dames! Ruby steps off a bus in Manhattan, and into her first Broadway show, but hours before the opening night curtain is to rise, the cast learns their theater is being demolished, so it is "all hands on deck" to find a stage to put on the show. Featuring rollicking tap dancing, love at first sight, joyful music and a boatload of laughs, Dames at Sea has everything you need to sweep your glooms away.
DAMES AT SEA features scenic design by three-time Tony Award nominee Anna Louizos, costume design by two-time Tony Award nominee David C. Woolard, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and Jason Kantrowitz, and sound design by Tony Award winner Scott Lehrer.
