Lyrics by Dorothy Fields. Book by Michael Bennett

Based on the play Two for the Seesaw by William Gibson.

Characters: 4 male, 4 female, mixed chorus From the composing team of Sweet Charity, Seesaw is an intimate, engaging love story and a big, brassy musical comedy rolled into one delightful evening of theatre.Jerry Ryan, a handsome WASPish lawyer from Omaha who has left his wife and fled to New York meets Gittel Mosca, a single, loveable Jewish girl from the Bronx who's studying to be a dancer. This unlikely pair meet, fall in love, and part in a bittersweet tale that is full of fun, music and laughter through tears. Sparkling musical numbers capture the excitement of New York street life and the up and down "seesaw" of Gittel and Jerry's affair.
