ABOUT THE FILM

"...the many jazzlike, improvisatory tap numbers nicely combine
looseness with genuine professionalism…that harks back to Bill
Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers." VARIETY

The Rise and Fall of Miss Thang is a modern tap dance drama about
a former tap-dancing prodigy who can barely find the energy to
braid a few heads at her mother's beauty salon until a handsome
dance instructor and her mother's gambling addiction jolt her in
to reality. "Miss Thang" was written and directed by Stacie E.
Hawkins and stars tap dance sensation Dormeshia Sumbry Edwards of
Bring N Da Noise, Bring N Da Funk. The film has screened in
festivals around the country and won Best Feature at the
International Black Film Festival of Nashville.

AMERICAN THEATRE OF ACTORS
314 W. 54th Street (54th & 8th Avenue)

Experience art that defies musical and theatrical classification. With blends of urban and traditional music styles, Constructing a Masterpiece channels the exuberance and diversity of New York City's multicultural landscape. "A young Duke Ellington of our times, William B. Johnson composes/arranges with an unrivaled command of musical experimentation and alternative instrumentation. The way Ellington used the piano, Johnson allows his virtuosity as a percussionist to lead his ensemble in a performance of un-categorical compositions." Johnson successfully combines horns, strings, side bass drums and traditional African instruments with the buckets in a cohesive ensemble that appeals to listeners from Blue Grass to World Beat.

Dates: Thursday - Saturday @ 8pm
Matinee: Saturday & Sunday @ 3pm
Doors open 30 Min before Show

Tickets: Advanced Tickets: $15 (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15)
General Admission: $25.00
Senior / Students: $20 with ID @ Door
