Great choreography, Great ensemble cast, Entertaining, Delightful, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a revival of a lost musical from the 1970's. Great score by Cy Coleman and witty lyrics by Dorothy Fields.

Don't see it if you want to see a larger-than-life musical performed on a small stage. Read more

Great singing and dancing but too small a stage for this show

See it if You like the show and the music but some of the best numbers are missing. Great choreography beautifully performed.

Don't see it if You want to see a great big musical. However, you will be seeing many of these young actors in the future. They are great.

Score: 87%. "Written in 1973, the musical 'Seesaw' takes us back to a moment of great uncertainty in New York City's history. The musical tells a love story of contrasts - country boy and city girl, and, in retrospect, the dichotomy between a time of innocence and a city in dire need."
