Ten of America’s best theatrical storytellers join director-choreographer Christopher Gattelli and composer Stephen Flaherty to create a ravishing evening that glides, leaps, and twirls through the giddy extremes of romantic love.  This unique event ranges across eras and cultures and tells its stories through the universal language of dance, from classical ballet to swing to tap to ballroom to jazz to flamenco and more.

Stephen Flaherty’s music illuminates ten original stories written by Douglas Carter Beane, Nilo Cruz, Christopher Durang, Carrie Fisher, David Henry Hwang, Rajiv Joseph, Terrence McNally, Marsha Norman, Lynn Nottage and Alfred Uhry. Title Song Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens.

World Premiere at the Old Globe Theatre, San Diego, on September 24, 2015.
