With music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Steel Pier (1997) is set in a 1933 Atlantic City ballroom, where a crowd has gathered to compete for a $2,000 prize and a shot at showbiz fame. The story follows aging celebrity Rita Pacine as she embarks on her last dance marathon, surrounded by a cast of partners, contestants and evolving relationships. Described as an American fable in two acts and 20 scenes and nominated for 11 Tony Awards, Steel Pier Lindy hops its way, by turns dark and hopeful, across the dance floor.
