    One of my favorites was EUBIE, a musical tribute to Eubie Blake the composer.

    It was a treat to see/hear Gregory and Maurice Hines and Chris Calloway (daughter of Cab Calloway).




    Not everyone likes musicals but I enjoy them.

    I have always loved the powerhouse voice of Melba Moore.
