The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Tappin’ Thru Life Off Broadway!
Can anything beat tap dancing? I mean, come on. Just try to watch someone tap dancing and NOT smile . . . and tap your own feet. I myself have been known to thrown down a time step on my stone office floors while waiting for my (slow) elevator. It always gets me in a better mood . . . and it always makes my folks at the front desk smile. (Actually, now that I think about it, maybe that’s laughter? Dangit!)
You know who can really make you smile, laugh, and stand up and cheer for his dancin’ skills? Maurice Hines.
And he’s doing that for audiences right now Off Broadway in his new song & dance musical, Tappin’ Thru Life, directed by a helluva hoofer himself, Jeff Calhoun.
If you want to see Maurice’s crazy feet do their thing, and hear him recount his incredible career against a tune-track of standards like “Luck Be a Lady,” “Smile,” “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),” and more, then you’re in luck!
Because we’re giving away two tickets away for free!
Here’s how you win:
Dance is one of the primary elements of every musical. Honestly, I sometimes forget about how important of an element it is until I do a focus group . . . and the dance numbers always test high. It’s what people expect from Broadway!
What’s the best dance number you’ve seen in a Broadway or Off Broadway show?
Mine? Well, since you asked . . . man, there are so many. The Susan Stroman dream ballet in the revival of Oklahoma!, Chris Wheeldon’s work all over An American in Paris . . . but I think my favorite is none other than Tommy Tune’s “We’ll Take A Glass Together” from Grand Hotel with the late, little and great, Michael Jeter.
Comment below what got your feet a tappin’ and you can win two tickets to see Maurice Hines Off Broadway!
