Production Description
Broadway legend MAURICE HINES taps us through his incredible career in show business in this song & dance celebration. Hines pays tribute to his brother, Gregory, and the performers who inspired him—from Frank Sinatra to Lena Horne—with standards like “Luck Be a Lady,” “Smile,” “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),” and more! Backed by THE DIVA JAZZ ORCHESTRA, an all-female big band, and sharing the stage with his protégés, THE MANZARI BROTHERS, this infectious showman is pulling out all the stops to put a smile on your face and dance away with your heart!
