Ruby steps off a bus from Utah and into her first Broadway show, but hours before the opening night curtain is to rise, the cast learns their theater is being demolished. Ruby and the cast, with the help of some adoring sailors, set a plan in motion to perform the show on a naval battleship. Featuring rollicking tap dancing, love at first sight, joyful music and a boatload of laughs, this glittering musical extravaganza has everything you need to sweep your glooms away.

For The Record:

"Dames At Sea" originally opened Off-Broadway at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre on December 20th, 1968, and then transferred to the Theater de Lys on April 22nd, 1969.  The production starred Bernadette Peters as Ruby.
