Description: "Dance With Me is a Broadway musical written by Greg Antonacci. It opened on January 23, 1975 and ran at the Mayfair Theatre for 396 performances. It was directed by and choreographed by Joel Zwick.
The action is set in the present time on a New York City Subway station. While waiting on the platform, Honey Boy daydreams about life, dating, baseball and rock n' roll in the 1950s.
Dance With Me was a renamed and re-staged version of “Dance Wi’ Me”, a production by the same team which opened at the Public Theater in June 1971. The show received three 1975 Tony Award nominations and two 1975 Drama Desk Award nominations. The original Broadway cast included Ann Abbott as Tommie Sincere, the author Greg Antonacci as Honey Boy (later, Peter Riegert took over the role), and John Bottoms as Jimmy Dick. Deborah Rush played Goldie Pot. The director, Joel Zwick, also made an appearance as Bulldog Allen."
