WHEN: November 15-December 29, 2013
Tap dancing greats, Broadway’s Maurice Hines and Southwest DC’s Manzari Brothers, add another page to the history of American tap dance in this incredible production coming to Arena Stage in November.
The show celebrates Hines’ brother Gregory and the singers, such as Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Judy Garland, and Lena Horne, who inspired them. The Diva Orchestra, an all-female nine-piece big band, joins in the fun.
Hines has said that his wonderful mother once told him and his brother Gregory that no matter what they did on stage, always do it with class and make sure the audiences leave saying WOW! I HAD A GREAT TIME, BABY.
Maurice Hines is Tappin’ Thru Life sounds like just the ticket for that!
