Nine-time Tony Award winner Tommy Tune will make his New York solo debut in Taps, Tunes and Tall Tales at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency this November. Tune will take the stage for six shows on three nights: November 18, 25 and 26. Musical Director Michael Biagi will accompany Tune on piano.
In his new show, Tune plans to sing, dance and share stories of his 50 years in the Broadway industry. The famously tap-dancing triple threat has won a record-setting nine Tony Awards (the second-most for any individual, after Hal Prince) for Best Actor in a Musical, Featured Actor in a Musical, Choreography and Direction, as well as eight Drama Desk Awards, three Astaire Awards and the Society of Directors and Choreographers’ George Abbott Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Tune’s Broadway credits as an actor, director and/or choreographer include My One and Only, Seesaw, A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine, Grand Hotel, The Will Rogers Follies, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Nine; his film credits include Hello, Dolly! and The Boy Friend. For the past three years, he has been touring the country in his musical memoir Steps In Time, A Broadway Biography in Song and Dance.
Feinstein’s is currently playing host to a month-long run of Betty Buckley’s concert The Other Woman — The Vixens of Broadway. Feinstein's 2012 season also includes Tamara Tunie, Sue Raney with Alan Broadbent, the Doo Wop Project, Peter Gallagher, Bill Charlap with Sandy Stewart, Michael Feinstein, Christine Ebersole and Harry Allen.
