Rodgers & Hart's On Your Toes, an improbable mix of gangsters, vaudeville and classical ballet, was the first musical to successfully integrate classical dance into the Broadway musical format. The original production was choreographed by George Balanchine and starred Ray Bolger, Tamara Geva and Monty Woolley. It opened on April 11, 1936, at the Imperial Theatre and ran for 315 performances. Songs include "Glad to be Unhappy," "There's A Small Hotel" and the legendary ballet "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue."
