About this show

This is a revival production of the 1973 Tony Winning musical Seesaw, with a book by Michael Bennett, music by Cy Coleman, and lyrics by Dorothy Fields. Directed/Choreographed by Michael Blevins. Musical Direction is by Christine Riley. "Michael Blevins is a wizard of a director/choreographer." --Peter Filichia, Seesaw is a delightful evening of theatre featuring an intimate, engaging love story and a brassy, show-biz musical comedy rolled into one. Based on the William Gibson Tony Nominated play Two for the Seesaw, it is the story of a bittersweet couple who fall in love through fun, music and laughter. The plot follows the romance of a handsome and tall WASP lawyer from Omaha, Jerry Ryan, who is running from his wife and domineering father-in-law to New York where he meets a sassy and fascinating Jewish girl, Gittel Mosca, a not-yet successful dancer from the Bronx. The plot focuses on a brief affair between our mid-western lawyer, and, a gallant and goofy streetwise dancer who wins at life but loses at love. This fast-paced show features sparkling musical numbers that capture the ups and downs of Gittel and Jerry's affair, the street scenes of Manhattan and the toe-tapping, escapades of Gittel and her budding-choreographer friend, David. Directed & Choreographed by: Michael Blevins; Executive Producer: Justin Boccitto "This no ordinary boy-meets-girl musical . . .well-crafted, intelligent and with a certain style. . ." raves The New York Times.
