“It’s Not Where You Start” – Seesaw
Music: Cy Coleman Lyrics: Dorothy Fields
William Gibson’s play Two for the Seesaw was the inspiration for this musical about the ups and downs of New York City life. An aspiring choreographer’s dreams are beginning to come true in this zingy tune which shows it’s not where you start as long as you finish big. This could not be more true than in the case of Nola Ochs, who received her master’s degree at age 98 on this day in 2010.
