SUNY Geneseo

Spring 2015 Performance Season

Feb. 10 - 15          The David Dance

                             Written and Guest Directed by Don Scime ‘88

Away from the microphone, David is a soft spoken, shy and unsure of himself. However, as his on-air alias, "Danger Dave"- the host of the local radio show, "Gay Talk," in Buffalo, New York- he's poised, witty and every listener's best friend. His sister Kate, is a thrice, divorced banker with a yen for classical music and cats. Though successful, the siblings suffer from a secret, yet vast, sense of inadequacy. Kate decides to adopt an orphan in Brazil and asks David to be a father figure. David struggles with his self-doubt while gawkily romancing his coworker. Past and present intertwine in this bittersweet winter's tale of a man learning to love and accept himself.

Dogfight is a musical about the power of compassion, empathy, and finally, redemption.  We are transported to San Francisco on November 21, 1963 on the eve of the Kennedy assassination, in the final hours of American innocence. We spend the evening with a group of arrogant, careless Marines before they ship out to Vietnam and a heroine who challenges them with her pure humanity.
