Dames at Sea

Music: Jim Wise
Book and Lyrics: George Haimsohn and Robin Miller

Synopsis Summary

DAMES AT SEA is a musical parody of the grand and glorious Busby Berkeley movie musicals of the 1930s. Calamity strikes when a group of performers, preparing for their upcoming show, needs to find a new venue because their theater is demolished. The show’s songwriter, Dick, happens to be a sailor who offers up his boat after being persuaded by leading lady and diva, Mona. Ruby, a sweet small-town girl with plans to make it big on Broadway, is the chorus girl who saves the day. DAMES AT SEA charms and delights with comedy, love songs and rollicking tap numbers. It’s the perfect beginning to Skylight’s 51st season!

“ Dames at Sea is a real winner…a little gem of a musical.” — The New York Times

“…the most ingenious show on or off Broadway.” — Time Magazine
