First off, I'm not sure why the description above has Susan Birkenhead as the editor. She wrote the lyrics to the show - and what EXCELLENT lyrics they are! This was a brilliantly put together show. The music is great, the lyrics witty, and the theme dynamic. Had an excellent cast of Gregory Hines, Stanley Wayne Mathis, Tonya Pinkins, and Savion Glover. What a beautiful show. My all time favorite.
