About Ballroom:

Bea Asher who, having lost her beloved husband Morrie, opens a thrift shop that amounts to an ongoing garage sale of her own belongings. When her friend Angie urges her to get out of the shop and start living again by suggesting that she visit the local Brooklyn dance hall, Bea agrees and begins life anew at the Stardust Ballroom. There she meets middle-aged mailman Alfred Rossi and falls in love again. Her dream of a happily-ever-after relationship is shattered when she discovers Alfred hasn't been as honest about his personal life as she thought, but having found a new life and love decides that "fifty percent" of someone you love is better than "all of anybody else".

Our Ballroom Review

Michael Bennett's imperfect 1978 musical Ballroom remains somewhat a footnote in his otherwise illustrious career, framed either side of its 116 performance Broadway run by the unprecedented success of A Chorus Line and his later hit Dreamgirls, shows that reinvented the genre and provided audiences with slick and gritty new musical hits.
