Waterloo East Theatre presents the The European Premier of the 1970’s musical Ballroom originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett, three years after A Chorus Line, it has a book by Jerome Kass music by Billy Goldenberg and lyrics Alan & Marilyn Bergman and features the classic Broadway song Fifty Percent.

 

Bea Asher who, having lost her beloved husband Morrie, opens a thrift shop that amounts to an ongoing garage sale of her own belongings. When her friend Angie urges her to get out of the shop and start living again by suggesting that she visit the local Brooklyn dance hall, Bea agrees and begins life anew at the Stardust Ballroom. There she meets middle-aged mailman Alfred Rossi and falls in love again. Her dream of a happily-ever-after relationship is shattered when she discovers Alfred hasn't been as honest about his personal life as she thought, but having found a new life and love decides that "fifty percent" of someone you love is better than "all of anybody else".
