, the showbiz man of a million talents, is sharing his gifts in a one-night-only affair — this year’s tour alternates Taps, Tunes and Tall Tales with Tommy Tune, Tonight! — and both shows celebrate a lifetime spent singing, dancing, acting, choreographing and directing some of theater’s most enduring works. The reviews label the show a loose personal biography of his more than 50 years in the business, interspersed with a little tap and backed by a musical trio. And what a career: The proud alumnus of Lamar High School went on to graduate from the University of Texas in Austin and headed straight to Broadway for a debut performance in the musical Baker Street
. Tune followed that up with acclaimed directing turns in Nine
, The Will Rogers Follies
, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
and its sequel, The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public
. With ten Tony Awards and a National Medal in the Arts, Tune is truly one of a kind. Don’t miss your free chance to see this master craftsman and native son perform in front of thousands of eager fans.
