Description

Full Length Musical

The delightfully humane and moving Broadway production was developed by Tony Award-winning director Michael Bennett co-creator of A Chorus Line. Based on the CBS television movie The Queen of the Stardust Ballroom which starred Maureen Stapleton as aging widow Bea Asher who, having lost her beloved Morrie, begins life anew at the Stardust Ballroom, an old school Brooklyn dance palace. There she meets middle-aged mailman Al and falls in love again. He's married. Bea's children and friends advise her against starting up a romance with a married man who refuses to leave his wife but Bea, having found a new life and love decides that "fifty percent" of someone you love is better than "all of anybody else".
