    Synopsis: 

    Prepare to be bewitched and beguiled by Ten Cents a Dance, a new musical conceived by John 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."

    Music, Memories and Regret

    Ben Brantley

    August 15, 2011: A piano is a dangerous thing in “Ten Cents a Dance,” John Doyle’s beautiful, brooding collage of the songs of Rodgers and Hart, now at the Williamstown Theater Festival here. A piano, you see, makes music. And music makes memories. And memories, well, as often as not they make regrets. So a piano can hurt a guy bad, especially in a place like the deserted gin palace where “Ten Cents a Dance” takes place.
