Mom's view: Dames at Sea is a sweet old fashioned show. If you are looking for a serious show that tackles serious subjects, this is not it. If you are looking for a really modern show, this is not that either. However, if you are looking for light fun show, this is definitely a good choice. If you are into dance particularly tap dance, you will especially enjoy this show. There is plenty of dancing throughout the show. This is not a show with a great and/or original plot nor is it a show with great music. The plot of the show is very familiar and has been done over and over again numerous times. It is the familiar story of the innocent young girl who comes to the big city to be a performer and somehow gets her big break at the expense of the experienced older performer. However, neither the fact that the story is not that original nor the less than memorable songs make the show any less enjoyable nor does the fact that this particular show was originally produced in 1966. The show is not a bad show for children to see if they are old enough to sit through a show with a story to it and if they are capable of being entertained by a show that does not necessarily have the bells and whistles and special effects of some of the more modern shows. There is nothing objectionable about the show, such as, bad language or inappropriate subject matter or anything like that. The show would probably appeal most to those who those people who enjoy romance, show biz related stories, dance, and/or throwback shows reminiscent of an earlier time. If a show likes this appeals to you, hurry down to the Helen Hayes Theatre to see it before it closes on January 3, 2016.
