“Dames at Sea” is that unusual show that everybody seems to know about but few people actually know. Or, if they did see the show at some point, it was probably outside New York, since “Dames” has long been a staple of school, community and regional theaters, thanks to its toe-tapping, umbrella-twirling buoyancy and a manageable cast of six beaming principals. (Full disclosure: This reporter knows every word to every song, since her mom played a star-spangled Joan in a 1972 production at the Saltaire Yacht Club on Fire Island.)
