Music is RANDOM! Performers were great and committed.
Costumes, set ideas, lighting design were all lacking. I've seen so much better from MTG!

Wonderful performances-quite believeable and it was definitely a musical in need of revival. The cast gave it their all! A noteworthy production!

Description

Music by Cy Coleman

Lyrics by Dorothy Fields

Written by Michael Bennett

Based on the play Two for the Seesaw by William Gibson

Adapted from William Gibson’s play Two for the Seesaw to the musical stage by Cy Coleman (score), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Michael Bennett (book), Seesaw received seven Tony® Award nominations (winning for Tommy Tune’s performance and Bennett’s choreography) and ran for a total of 296 performances. Seesaw was a show of firsts and lasts: launching the career of Tommy Tune and highlighting the final lyrics of the great Dorothy Fields. Featuring pulsating Cy Coleman melodies (“It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish”) and with 1970 era New York as the background, Seesaw tells the tale of a slightly square, not–quite single lawyer from the Midwest and an off-kilter would-be-dancer from the Bronx.

Seesaw will star Eydie Alyson as Gittel, Roger Befeler as Jerry and Steven Hack as David.  The ensemble will feature MTG members Danny Bolero, Ron Christopher Jones and Melissa Lyons with guest artists Kari Lee Cartwright, Robyn Cohen, Lindsay MacDonald, Lowe Taylor and Jake Wesley Stewart.  Seesaw will be directed and choreographed by Todd Nielsen with musical direction by Dean Mora and is produced for MTG by Eileen Barnett and Pamela Hamill.
