Ballroom, opened on December 14, 1978 at the Majestic Theatre, where it ran for 116 performances. The cast included Dorothy Loudon as Bea and Vincent Gardenia as Alfred. In the chorus was Marilyn Cooper and Mary Ann Niles  The sets were by Robin Wagner, and Theoni V. Aldredge designed the costumes.
