Broadway’s legendary song and dance man, Tommy Tune, celebrates 50 years on the Great White Way with this high-stepping show that traces his nine-time Tony Award-winning career. Backed by a band and the singing and dancing titans of the Manhattan Rhythm Kings, Tune sings, dances and laughs his way through his life in the footlights. “Ninety minutes you fervently wish would never end…as big as anything on Broadway” (New York Magazine).
