Taking a break from his recent Off-Broadway hit Tappin’ Thru Life, dancer, choreographer and actor Maurice Hines brings his show-stopping energy and charismatic life story to Old Saybrook for a special taping of The Kate television series. Maurice Hines has been gracing stages with his tap skills since the age of five and continues to thrill audiences decades later.
Watch the Tony Award-nominated performer honor the past while influencing the present as he pays homage to his late brother and dancing partner Gregory Hines and the deep influences that shaped their passion for showbiz such as Lena Horne, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald, among others.
Hines is accompanied by the Diva Jazz Orchestra, a nine-piece all-girl band that swings as hard as Count Basie as well as guest appearances by the rising-star tap duo the Manzari Brothers. Mr. Hines is nothing short of dazzling with his tapping, singing and humorous life stories, bringing back to life a culture that remains forever timeless.
