Tommy Tune: Broadway Legend Returns To Feinstein's

Having worn many hats over the course of his 50-year career in the theater, actor, dancer, director and choreographer Tommy Tune has done it all. He's won ten Tony Awards, among many other honors. On Sunday, March 18, Tune returns to San Francisco for two shows at Feinstein's at the Nikko.

"I'm so exciting to be returning," Tune said in an interview with the Bay Area Reporter, speaking from his home in New York. "The first time I played San Francisco was at the Venetian Room, and we were a smash. It was flattering to be appreciated."

For his show at Feinstein's, Tune will be sharing songs and stories from his illustrious career, a career that seemed unlikely when he was growing up in Wichita Falls, Texas.

"When you grow up in Texas they don't want you to leave," he recalled. "Because they have everything––everything but Broadway. I never saw a play until I was 16."

It was the movies that got the young Tune interested in musical theater.
