Tommy Tune is one of the country’s most prolific performer/director/choreographers, now celebrating his golden decade on the great American stage. He has received 9 Tony Awards, The National Medal of Arts, 8 Drama Desk Awards, 3 Astaire Awards, and multiple Life Time Achievement Awards, including the Society of Directors and Choreographers’ George Abbott Award for Lifetime Achievement, and the 2015 recipient for the Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. In Tommy Tune Tonight, he returns to his hometown with unforgettable dancing, singing, and tale-telling through 50 years of big time showmanship.

A native Houstonian, Tune began his career as a dancer in the Broadway shows Baker Street, A Joyful Noise, and How Now Dow Jones. He has received Tony Awards for The Will Rogers Follies (Direction and Choreography), Grand Hotel (Direction and Choreography), My One and Only (Actor in a Musical and Choreography) Nine (Direction), A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine (Choreography), and Seesaw (Featured Actor in a Musical). Tune received two Tony nominations (Direction and Choreography) for The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas.

Film credits include Hello Dolly, The Boy Friend, and Mimi Bluette…fiore del mio giardino. In 1999, he made his Las Vegas debut as the star of EFX at the MGM Grand Hotel. Tune is the recipient of the National Medal Of Arts, the highest honor for artistic achievement given by the President of the United States, and he has been honored with his own star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame and was inducted into The Theater Hall of Fame by Gwen Verdon. In 2009 the New York Landmarks Conservancy designated Mr. Tune as a Living Landmark. In early 2015 Tune received rave reviews for his tap dancing and singing role in the Encores! production of Lady, Be Good! at New York City Center, and he most recently toured the country in his one-man show, Taps, Tunes and Tall Tales.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM.
