Written and Directed by Black Ensemble Theater Associate Director Rueben D. Echoles
Opening the Black Ensemble Theater’s 41st Season of Excellence, “The Dance Theater Season”, is another world premiere musical: “The Nicholas Brothers” (My Brother’s Keeper) written by Black Ensemble Theater’s Associate Director, Rueben D. Echoles. The Nicholas Brothers were the most legendary dance team in history. Harold & Fayard Nicholas broke through racist color barriers and rose to international stardom on stage and screen. They were acclaimed as the greatest dance team in history during the 1930s and 40’s. We know them as a dynamic, high-flying, dance duo, but who were these men outside of the spotlight? This phenomenal story is told by the women who knew them best; featuring the music of Cab Calloway, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, and Dorothy Dandridge as well as original music written by Rueben D. Echoles, who also directs and stars as Harold Nicholas. You don’t want to miss this vibrant, intriguing and exciting Black Ensemble musical production featuring the Black Ensemble Orchestra under the direction of Robert Reddrick.
