Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, written by Richard Alfieri, opens Friday, May 4th at the Miami Beach Stage Door Theatre, where it will run each weekend through May 20. Since its Los Angeles premiere and Broadway opening, Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks has been translated into 12 languages and has traversed the globe with productions in over 20 countries. With over 50 productions and two national tours in Germany alone, the play has established itself as an international hit and one of the most produced plays in the world.
Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks is a comedy about Lily Harrison, who hires Michael Minetti for private lessons in Tango, Swing, Modern, Foxtrot and Cha-Cha. What happens when a Southern Baptist Minister’s widow hires a gay, ex-Broadway chorus boy to give her six private dance lessons at her beachfront condo? . . . War! Over the course of six weeks, this odd couple transforms their acrimony into a dance of intimacy as they learn to overcome their differences and create a poignant connection to each other. At its core, the play is about two very different people who learn to comfort each other as they share their deepest secrets and pain. Alfieri’s writing is sparkling, witty, touching and laugh out loud – all performed against a panorama of ageism and bigotry.
