Photos-Video: Miriam Spritzer


Maurice Hines Tappin’ Thru Life is a swinging, song and dance musical that celebrates the astonishing showmanship of one of the last great tap dancers of a by-gone era still working today and whose collaborators were a jaw-dropping, who’s who of theatre, music, film and television. Co-starring the fierce tap dancing Manzari brothers and the all female vivacious Diva Jazz Orchestra, the show is directed by Jeff Calhoun (Newsies, Deaf West’s Big River, Grease).

Maurice’s discoveries, John and Leo Manzari, are a pair of tap dancing siblings reminiscent of a young Maurice and his brother Gregory. In the cast:  dancers Devin and Julia Ruth, Dario Natarelli.
