On Saturday, December 1, 2019, “The Little Dancer… a holiday family musical” will make a triumphant return to New York City for its second production at Theatre 71 on the Upper West Side, right off Broadway on 71st Street. Written by Steven Fisher, the one-hour show tells the heart-warming story of how 14-year-old Marie Van Goethem, Edgar Degas’ model for his one and only sculpture, became the most famous ballerina in the world.
Last year’s premier received rave reviews. “Steven Fisher’s ‘The Little Dancer’ is nothing less than extraordinary,” wrote Kristen Morale of Broadway World. “This production captures the very essence of magic that exists in a child’s heart.” The show was also featured on Good Morning America.
The production will once again be directed by Richard Vida and choreographed by Lainie Sakakura, both Broadway veterans. The cast features six New York actors, as well as 15 young people who make up the show’s “Musical Theatre Geek Chorus” (MTGC).
Fisher prides himself on writing elevated theatre for young people. “Children’s Theatre doesn’t have to be dumbed down for kids or boring for adults. Kids today are savvy, and their parents always appreciate not being put to sleep,” says Fisher. “This particular show has it all for young people, offering them the world of theatre, art, dance, and musical theatre all in one.”
