Time Out says

The 2022 season of City Center’s invaluable Encores! concert series begins with a fond look back at the 1983 Broadway musical The Tap Dance Kid, in which a 10-year-old boy with dreams of becoming a professional dancer encounters resistance from his family. Kenny Leon directs and Jared Grimes choreographs; the high-wattage cast includes Joshua Henry, Adrienne Walker, Tracee Beazer, Trevor Jackson and Alexander Bello as the kid. The music is by Dreamgirls composer Henry Krieger, and the book and lyrics are by Charles Blackwell and Robert Lorick, respectively. Also on deck at Encores! this season: The Life (March 16–20) and Into the Woods (May 4–15).
