World premiere at Apollo Theater in New York next Tuesday, James Brown: Get On The Good Foot, A Celebration In Dance
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — Before a new show about James Brown debuts at New York's famous Apollo Theater you can see it here in town. James Brown: Get On The Good Foot, A Celebration In Dance is having it's workshop presentation in Lafayette tonight. It's a dance show that showcases the legendary soul singer. The workshop is the first public showing. It's also an opportunity for the cast and crew to see the public's reaction before it hits the big stage, and the best part is the national publicity this production is giving our community.
"Lafayette is known as an entrepreneurial community and this is obviously a new area of the economy and workforce development that is going to get national press," says Jackie Lyle, Lafayette project coordinator for production.
Tonight's show starts at 7:30 at the Heymann Theater, and there are still some tickets available. That will be it's only performance in Lafayette before it's world premiere in New York next Tuesday.
