Why See On Your Toes?
Encore's revival of Rodgers & Hart's On Your Toes is an improbable mix of gangsters, vaudeville and classical ballet; it became the first musical to successfully integrate classical dance into the Broadway musical format.
The original production was choreographed by none other than George Balanchine and starred Ray Bolger, Tamara Geva and Monty Woolley. It opened in 1936 at the Imperial Theatre and ran for 315 performances. Songs include "Glad to be Unhappy," "There's A Small Hotel" and the legendary ballet "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue."
