Showbiz SoCAL Exclusive Podcast Interview! GENA ROWLANDS & CHEYENNE JACKSON Discuss SIX DANCE LESSONS IN SIX WEEKS
Based on the international hit play by Richard Alfieri which has played in 24 countries and in 14 languages, Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks is a touching and human, yet madcap comedy about a formidable retired woman, Lily Harrison (Gena Rowlands), who hires an acerbic dance instructor, Michael Minetti (Cheyenne Jackson), to give her private dance lessons —one per week for six weeks— in her gulf-front condo in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida.
What begins as an incompatible relationship blossoms into an intimate friendship as these two people from very different backgrounds reveal their secrets, fears, and joys while dancing the Swing, Tango, Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, and Contemporary Dance. By the final lesson, Lily shares her most closely guarded secret and he shares his greatest gifts, his loyalty and compassion.
SIX DANCE LESSONS is a poignant comedy with music and dance about friendship and ageism and also stars Julian Sands, Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, and Oscar winner Rita Moreno and is directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman.
