NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – He is one of the most recognized and honored actors, dancers, directors and choreographers in Broadway history. Now Tommy Tune is back on stage in the city.
His “Taps, Tunes & Tall Tales” show is playing at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency Sunday night and Monday night.
Tommy Tune sat down with CBS 2’s Don Dahler to discuss the show, his career and his great loss due to superstorm Sandy.
Watch the full interview here:
The show is a retrospective of Tune’s career. He said the first write-through of the show lasted for two hours but had to be pared way down.
“That’s the hard part, to know what to leave out,” Tune said.
Tune said he is still getting used to the smaller stage but likes the close proximity to the audience.
“This is my first foray into the nightclub show,” Tune told Dahler. “It’s intimate, it’s good.”
The tall performer said the two-foot by four-foot stage is all the theater can handle, which is a challenge for his big feet.
“I haven’t fallen off it yet!” Tune joked to Dahler.
