Marvel of marvels, a beautiful event coming your way, in the still-new and pretty gorgeous Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Broadway legend Maurice Hines teams up with the Manzari Brothers and 11-year old tapping phenomenom Luke Spring, to tap through 40 years in show business.
In “Maurice Hines is Tappin’ Through Life,” Hines, through song and dance, pays tribute to his brother, Gregory, and the singers who have inspired him, from Frank Sinatra to Lena Horne. To help bring the history of American tap to life, Hines brings The Diva Orchestra, an all-female nine-piece big band.
Sinatra? Lena Horne? Gregory Hines, may that marvelous man rest in peace? An all-girl big band? What is not to love here? Many performances, nearly twenty. Ticket up!
