"Steps in Time, A Broadway Biography in Song and Dance"
It seems tap dancers, like fine wines, only improve with age. At 71, Tommy Tune is that rare vintage - a choreographer, dancer, singer, director and producer who remains at the top of his game. If recent press photos are any evidence, with his salt-and-pepper hair he's still easy on the eye. The notoriously tall (6-1/2 foot) former Lamar High School and then University of Houston grad student, who has won so many hearts over the years, returns to Texas for a one-night season finale at Galveston's Grand Opera House. Combining his love for Broadway and leading back as far as classic vaudeville, the show is aptly titled "Steps in Time, A Broadway Biography in Song and Dance." His longtime friends The Manhattan Rhythm Kings join Tune for an epic evening dedicated in part to tap legend Honi Coles, from whom Tune learned many of the steps firsthand. 8 p.m. The Grand 1894 Opera House, 2020 Postoffice Street, Galveston. For information, call 800-821-1894 or visit www.thegrand.com. $39 to $66.
