SAMUEL A. SIMON: THE ACTUAL DANCE
“A life-affirming ode to commitment and boundless love.” (Manhattan Digest)
Samuel A. Simon presents excerpts from The Actual Dance, the real-life story of a husband finding the strength and beauty as his wife’s love partner and care partner as they anticipate an unhappy ending to her breast cancer. He searches for an answer to, “How can I do what I know I have to do?” The show has a happy ending. It is a love story, about what love really means. Audiences laugh, cry, and then cheer. It has been touring for seven years with performances throughout the US and internationally.
