Tap or Die
Buy Tickets: Friday January 31, 3:30p
Master hoofer Derick Grant, who brought in the funk with Savion Glover, is determined to bring his own show—Imagine Tap!— to Broadway. It was a hit in Chicago but faces huge obstacles in New York—the ghosts of the Big Band Era, the pitfalls of commerce, and a legacy of racism. With an original score by Stomp phenom Nicholas Young and performances by Michelle Dorrance, Jason Samuels Smith, and other giants, TAP OR DIE is an ode to the genre, an indictment of the system, and a tribute to those who deserve to step onto the Great White Way. Throw down the wood, Broadway!
