Ten Cents a Dance

August 11 - August 28 | Main Stage
2011 Season

Author: Doyle, John
Director: Doyle, John

Prepare to be bewitched and beguiled by Ten Cents a Dance, a new musical conceived by Doyle, who applies his signature style of engaging a company of actor-musicians to bring to life the extraordinary music of Rodgers and Hart. Crooner Johnny wistfully recalls his lifelong love affair of chorus girl Miss Jones, who is embodied by five women, each portraying a different stage of her life. As Johnny and Miss Jones take “Manhattan” under a “Blue Moon” while “Falling in Love with Love,” you can’t help but think “Isn’t it Romantic?” – even if sometimes “The Lady is a Tramp.” These and so many other unforgettable songs – filled with infatuation, longing, and enchantment – will sparkle like a glass of champagne on a sexy summer evening. “All you need is a ticket, come on big boy, ten cents a dance.”

Ten Cents a Dance is a recipient of a 2011 Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award and is presented with the generous support of James & Virginia Giddens.

Produced in association with McCarter Theatre Center, Princeton, NJ
