"Dancing Lessons" At Barrington Stage

Jul 30, 2014


   Barrington Stage Company will be presenting the world premiere of Dancing Lessons, the new romantic comedy by playwright and BSC Associate Artist Mark St. Germain from August 7th – 24th.

Directed by Barrington Stage Artistic Director Julianne Boyd, Dancing Lessons stars John Cariani and Paige Davis. John Cariani made his BSC debut as ‘Dogberry’ in last summer’s Much Ado About Nothing. Cariani is also the playwright of the play Almost, Maine. Paige Davis is known for Broadway’s Chicago and TLC’s Trading Spaces.

Dancing Lessons centers on a young man with high-functioning autism seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer, now sidelined with injuries. As their relationship unfolds, they’re caught off-guard by the surprising discoveries that they make about each other.

The production marks the ninth play by Mark St. Germain that BSC will produce, and the eighth world premiere of his work. We welcome Mark along with John Cariani and Paige Davis.
