Why See Half Time?

MusicalsOff Broadway Shows

From the Director Kinky Boots

With its future Broadway bow still to be announced, brand new musical Half Time makes a stop at the Paper Mill Playhouse as part of their new season. An inspiring show that proves you're never old to bust a move, Half Time is the true story of the NBA's first ever senior dance troupe. Based on a 2008 documentary, this musical tracks a group of venerable ladies and gents as they get to grips with the latest hip-hop moves in preparation for their debut half time performance.

Formerly Gotta Dance, this fizzy show boasts an incredibly starry creative team, including the last score from the late great Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line), a book from Chad Beguelin (Aladdin) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), and direction from Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, who previously helmed the Broadway blockbuster Kinky Boots.
