Marathon '33

Dennis Deloria
Performance Dates
Find yourself transported back to the 30’s of the Great Depression, a spectator at a dance marathon, as exhausted and jobless competitors literally dance for their lives. This was the acclaimed experimental play by actress/singer/dancer June Havoc, the real life “Baby June” of Gypsy, recreating her harrowing years as a marathon dancer. This theatrical tour de force combines music, dance, history and desperation in one of TACT’s most ambitious productions.
