Now, at 91, Maybin Hewes asserts that she is ready to do her “last big show.” Before she puts her tap shoes away, she has created a new revue, This Joint Is Jumpin’. Together with a group of talents from a new generation of performers, she’ll present lots of dancing (with dancers who know how), lots of singing (with great songs from a time where lyrics made sense and melodies were tuneful), live music, and comedy sketches (funny stuff with no four-letter expletives) that keep things fast-paced.
Why now for This Joint Is Jumpin’? After the last twenty-two months that Los Angeles has been through, audiences will be ready for a show full of good times and laughter.
Joining Ms. Hewes on stage are Anna Gagliardo, Nicole Gianuca, Arlene Parness, Mitchell Roché, Lauren Sullivan, Sydney Swearengin, and Nick Waaland.
Judy Rose stages and directs. Written and produced by Maybin Hewes. A co-production of 44th St. Productions and Theatre West.
