REVIEW: Tommy Tune Taps to a Deserved Ovation

by Joy Donovan on March 28, 2011

True talent. Tommy Tune has it.

Tap dancing his way through his life story, master entertainer Tommy Tune brings as much charm as his legs are long to the Music Hall at Fair Park. In his recent show, Tommy Tune: Steps in Time, the Texas native put on the kind of show that just made me smile from beginning to end.

Even though he shares the stage with the talented Manhattan Rhythm Kings, the spotlight was shining brightly on the red-shoed Tommy Tune during the entire no-intermission, 90-minute show. In this production presented by the Dallas Summer Musicals (www.dallassummermusicals.org), he starts with a demo of a time step–a basic for any tap dancer–and proceeds to weave together his autobiography through singing and dancing.

A delicious amount of name dropping was thrown in, he recounts his memories of Broadway, movies and even the Music Hall at Fair Park. It was a terrific show, made even more amazing by the fact Tommy Tune is a boyish 72 years old, a fact that just doesn’t compute when you see him in action.

I am often very annoyed at Dallas audiences that give just any old performance a standing ovation. For this show? I was the first one on my feet.

A True Legend Has Left Us….

by Larre Green on March 23, 2011

Today it was announced that Elizabeth Taylor had died at the
age of 79 of congestive heart failure. 
Many have remarked about her incredible Hollywood accomplishments,
staring in over fifty films but I truly believe that beyond her amazing acting career,
her somewhat turbulent personal life and even her brilliance as a business
woman, it will be her extraordinary efforts in humanitarian causes that will be
what history remembers her for.   This
was a woman who truly used her life to make a difference in others; something
we can all learn from. 

We are all blessed with one type of talent or another.  It may be the ability to lend a helping hand
by volunteering time at a non-profit, it may be utilizing your business
contacts, lending your name in support of an effort to make a difference or it
could be the ability to help financially, but we all have the ability to make a
difference.  I know of no other icon who
has left such a mark in all three areas. 
Elizabeth Taylor lived life to the fullest but at the same time, worked
tirelessly so that others could do the same.
