Sean Hayes To Star In SIX DANCE LESSONS IN SIX WEEKS

Sean-HayesSean Hayes will be starring an adaptation of the stage play Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks opposite Gena Rowlands. The play, which centers around a lonely widow who hires a dance teacher to show her how to foxtrot, tango, rhumba, etc., was written by Richard Alfieri, who will also be handling the screenplay. Arthur Allan Seidelman is set to direct.

If there is no major changes from the screenplay, Hayes and Rowlands will be the only two actors in the film.

Although it premiered in Los Angeles, the play had a brief Broadway run where it starred Mark Hammil as dance teacher Michael Minetti and Polly Bergen as Lily Harrison. The show only ran about a month, it’s run cut short by a health issue of Bergen’s. I did manage to see the show and found it enjoyable enough, nothing too extraordinary but nothing too odious either. There is certainly enough story there for Hayes and Rowlands to make a potentially interesting movie.
