Ten Cents a Dance - Off-Broadway

The unforgettable music of Rodgers and Hart, whose sublime lyrics and melodies highlight the Great American Songbook, provides the inspiration for Ten Cents a Dance. In this long-awaited New York premiere, the love affair between a piano player and a taxi dancer is uniquely told through the artistry of six actor-musicians as a dazzling and haunting elegy on the power of memory and music.
