Let a dance legend guide you through his life story, as he taps along to vintage big-band smashes and iconic tunes from Broadway history, while also paying tribute to his late brother, Gregory Hines. Prepare for a living, breathing autobiography as Hines spins memoir from a rich trove of moves. And when the backing band is as potent as the Diva Jazz Orchestra, you know the music will prove every bit as expressive and joyful as Hines’s infectious showmanship. This night’s irrepressibly creative vibe will be supercharged by the “sharp, ecstatic” music (New York Times) of jazz vocalist and bandleader Michael Mwenso and his band, The Shakes.
